Well, loyal readers, it’s that time again — get ready to dig deep into your ample pride-of-place and send us your nominations for the Best Yachting Town. Last year it was the small Chesapeake gem of Oxford, Maryland that pulled out a victory. Who will lay claim to the title of YACHTING’s Best Waterfront Town this year? Will we head to the west coast for a victory celebration, or maybe down south? The choice is all yours.

NOMINATIONS AND VOTING ARE NOW CLOSED. Read up on our favorites here.
