"For more than six months, we’ve been asking our readers to let us know which towns are their favorites. We start with the premise, of course, that to be one of the world’s great towns, you must be on the water — that’s just a no-brainer. From there, though, we have left the definition of best up to you: You’re the ones who decide whether a town with luxury marina facilities is better than one with room for two visitors to tie up at a town dock for free, whether being world-renowned as a yachting destination is better than being a hidden gem tucked into a sleepy backwater, whether a small town with a boatbuilding tradition trumps being the premier destination for superyachts. Do you like a rugged, rock-strewn shore or palm-lined coasts? A street lined with rollicking waterfront bars and seafood restaurants or one local watering hole that gets its catch of the day from its most regular customer? Is this the town you most like to sail into every summer or the one where you dropped anchor for good a long time ago? Greatness — like beauty — is in the eye of the beholder.
If you’ve been remiss in singing your favorite port’s praises, it’s not too late. You have until June 1, 2011, to have a look at the 50 finalists that readers have already written in to recommend and let us know which strikes you as the very best of the best. Go to www.yachtingmagazine.com/50bestvoting to cast your vote online, and then feel free to back it up with as much evidence or biased opinion as you care to in our 50 Best Towns forum. YACHTING will visit the winning town to present the award and get a firsthand look at why this town beat out all the others."
