    NO, I never ever had a bad run ashore, Sorry!!! ,if you have had a bad run ashore you can only blame yourself matelol.

  18. I know what you mean, but their are places where it is less easy. :(
  19. I deliberately didn't include base ports in my post above but if I could go back and have a run ashore anywhere in the world, anytime, it would be Guz in the late '70s, early '80s.

    Well before my time but would also like to have experienced Malta in the '50s and '60s.
  20. Best: Gib, Waheymouth (portland), Anywhere WIGS (xmt ST Vincent), the States (but only for the Grippos and Dial-a-sailor), Reykjavik, anywhere not under pun!!

    Worst: hard to think, but Italy was always hard work, they clearly don't appreciate Jack's special sense of humour/adventure..!
