PETERSBURG - Petersburg and Seattle are already among the 10 best, and either could be voted America's best yachting community.
Petersburg and Seattle were ranked in the top 10 by Yachting Magazine in its July edition.
The two Pacific Northwest communities are now vying with others in the top 50 in an online contest on the magazine's Facebook page to be ranked the best.
Others in the top 10 are New Orleans; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Fernandina Beach, Fla.; Jamestown, R.I.; Mackinac Island, Mich.; Montauk, N.Y., and Ocracoke, N.C.
Voting goes through Aug. 30, and the winner will be announced in a fall issue of the magazine.
Oxford, Md., and Beaufort, N.C., won the previous two contests.
