They all have some little quirk to entering.. Cressent City from the north, you have to wrap around and come in from the south..
Eureka, its always foggy when everything else is clear and as the swells roll down the channel, you'll be doing 6 knots and then you'll be doing 12, and then back to 6, and then back to 12 as the rollers bring you in..
In Ft. Bragg, watch the lights under the bridge to guide you in.. red on one side, green on the other and white down the center, keep the white in sight..
It turns green or red if you are off center...
Bodega bay, watch really close as you can mistake the flashing red light on the road for the light at the end of the jetty.
Best to plan on leaving each harbor befor dawn each day so you get into the next durring daylight..
And if leaving Ft. Bragg in the dark hours, line up the two offshore
lights, one about 1/2 mile and the other 1 mile out.. when lined up, it will take you right out the center of the channel........
