Send us your charter tips and top spots.Elaine Lembo

Do you pack two swimsuits, or carry along a pair of sunglasses just in case? Name your favorite snorkeling spots and dive sites, from Thailand to Tortola; the best water toys for your brand of fun; tunes you listen to while you cruise; the anchorages you settle into to escape the crowds.Share your must-haves: cocktails to make, best books, beaches, and bars you scope out throughout the world's stunning vacation sailing grounds.

Shutterbugs, tell us about your winning cameras, from throw-away to fancy.

Gourmands, we want to know about the Mediterranean open-air markets you stroll through, the tavernas you poke into, the spices and perfumes and locally made crafts and jewelry and artwork you furtively stow in your luggage to bring back home.

We want to hear from you! Include pictures, and remember to identify the people, boat, and location. Post your responses here and email your photos to deputy editor Elaine Lembo.
