There are some places that you have to liven up yourself with the help of your mates, but normally Jack could have a ball , in a Nunnery, not that I've ever been in one lol

Best : Cape Town, New York, W. Indies

Worst: Rio Grande (Brazil), Djibouti

UK, never had a bad run in the UK (from Hull, so I can't count that)

Runs ashore are few and far between now, just done 6 months down south, had only one good run and that was Cape Town, all the other visits were all the rocks in the Atlantic for one night at anchor and no night leave due to no boats running. Sorry had a couple of nights in Walvis Bay, Namibia which was okay.

Just shows your lack of adventure, mind you the crawl back to the NATO fueling jetty could be a bit of a bumber

I see that Swansea is coming up a few times as the best in UK. I had an absolute screamer of a run there in '82 whilst on the Arethusa. The only problem I had, was that my home town is just down the road and I had an invasion of aunts, Uncles, cousins etc....Bar bill went through the roof...oh happy days

Best: New York for Navy Week, tropicals plus Yankee ladies, what a run...

Worse: Djibouti, foul smelling dirty hellhole, just narrowly ahead of the Cape Verde Islands. Just thinking about that place makes me shudder.

Best UK: Newcastle, before they built that stupid bridge and you could get right up to Tyne bridge, not just at Spillers Wharf (with the exception of Capital Ships, where I never got past North Shields).

Worse UK Great Yarmouth in winter. A fish patrol stand off many moons ago, never again.
