Los Angeles Area Charter

Will be in Los Angeles for a few days and am looking for a recommendation on where to rent a ~27-30 foot sailboat for a day rental.

Would like something low hassle, walk in, answer a few questions, plop a credit card down type situation.

My brother and I are looking to go out for the day. Long Beach, Dana point etc are all candidate locations.

Any help appreciated.

Well everyone in LA must have been asleep these past few days.

Found a nice place in Marina Del Ray. My brother had a membership at a club (kind of like a time share) in San Diego and had completed an ASA course but hadn't been sailing much due to the drive from Orange County.

I called Marina Del ray on Thursday and sussed it out but didn't lay in anything definite. We pitched up on Friday and unfortunately the "last" check out skipper had just been booked. Oh, well. We scheduled for today and with him being local here decided he should do the checkout and I served as semi-competent crew.

Friday's wind was brilliant, this morning was a lot of drifting ;-)

We muddled through the 3 hour checkout in a catalina 27 and now we are "in the game" for the future. He promises to take his son out and keep his skills up so next trip through we can schedule a boat and make a day of it.

The mainsheet rig on the Catalina was a bit weird but it had a furling jib and the iron jenny fired up the first time. It was a decent boat boat unfortunately with light and variable winds below 3 kts I couldn't tell you how it sailed.

Looking forward to trying a variety of boats over the next few trips.
