How Does Your State Rank for Beachcat Sailing?

Or more accurately, how does it rank as far as sending visits to TheBeachcats.com, which is pretty much the same thing. icon_biggrin

Who wants to try and list the ten US states that sent the most people to TheBeachcats.com during the last 366 days?

Extra credit for getting them in order!

Not bad, 6 out of 10, your list has four states not in the top ten. You have included the top three, but not in order. (and not your top three)

Who's next?

There are only 10 provinces. Same as states really, actually with more autonomy than states. Each is almost its own country in terms of governance. The main reason our taxes are so much higher than the US. Population density or lack thereof is another big reason.

Yeah, I'd rank Hawaii pretty low (like off the list). Depending on the island, you may not get a beach to put the "beach" in "beach cat". And if you do get a beach, you may not get favorable wind. I had a much easier time bopping around Texas, finding a place to launch, than I do here in Hawaii.

Time for a hint. Some states have come up a lot but are NOT in the top ten.

South Carolina
Louisiana
Minnesota
Wisconsin
New Jersey

There have been other wrong answers, but here's another hint. There is one top ten state that has only been listed by Bacho and Motivated.

Not in this case, no tricks. heiligenschein

We are talking visits to the website, not number of members or number who have joined, but actual page loads from the various states and countries.

There are a couple of states that most (not everyone) has missed. States that border water, either salt or fresh, and have reasonable population. icon_cool
