Re: Anchorages between San Francisco and San Diego

To the OP- You're not leaving next week. Our first significant storm of the season will arrive Monday. The wind will be south or SW 15-25g30 until Thursday. Then it will turn NW and blow 20-30 knots for several days, then go nearly calm. In summer we have reliable NW wind but not in winter. You are more likely to be motoring south during the winter. At least there is less fog in the winter. I have done some beautiful sailing in January with clear skies, 50 mile visibility, warmth and less than 10 knots of wind. Beautiful but not good for sailing long distances (but fine for motoring).

Re: Anchorages between San Francisco and San Diego

i sailed south on a prefrontal for winter storrm. i can, as i have a heavy cruiser that loves that stuff. in a lesser weight finer keeled boat, one might want to set out on passage south 2 days after a winter storm ends. first day to allow the conditions to lay down, second for seas.
years prior, i set sail a day after an el nino storm and found seas were still quite large. scared the **** out of the boat sowner. i was not that soul., i merely sailed the boat from avalon to oceanside essentially sola, with cowering owner below decks not sober.....taught me i didnt want same under water configuration with my own cruising boat. was irwin citation 37 sloop. seas were actually around 20 ft. he said they were 40, i didnt look astern. i was too busy. (no effective otto pile it--was wheel mount and was overpowered by the weather.) we got good sog--made trip mooring to dock in under 19 hours.

Re: Anchorages between San Francisco and San Diego
