Lake Mohave, NV
Dillon Lake, CO (just for the scenery)
Lake McConaughy, NE
Anywhere on the MS Gulf Coast or FL panhandle - Ocean Springs YC and Ft. Walton Beach especially
Northern IN (Gary) - seriously, check out Dunes National Seashore
West coast of MI (Lake Michigan) - St. Joseph, South Haven, Muskegon, Ludington
North coast of Lake Erie (in Canada - seriously)
Jersey Shore (south of Atlantic City)
East coast of FL - pretty much anywhere
Southern Chesapeake Bay
Sebago Lake, ME

And yeah, I've sailed in all those places (except Dillon).

OK, I made a Google map of many of the suggestions and added some of my own. I also shared it and allowed anyone to add places and descriptions.

Open the map, mark you favorite place and tells us all about it.
I've shared a map with you called Sailing Lakes and Places:

Someone already put up a Google map with favorite sailing pin locations like that before, I know I put my 3 favorite spots on it. I can't find it right now though.

Surprised to see Mohave at the top of your list ? !!
I have kite-boarded at that lake for 7 years now ;
it's Hot (113 in the shade), it's Dry as a desert ( it Is in a desert),
6-mile beach is a crowded nightmare on weekends ...
but that lake Does have wind ((lots of it)) and all the carp are dead !!

Around the Apostle Islands on Lake Superiors is still one of my favorite places to sail.
