We are new to CA and have a 34 foot Cal
in Ventura. Up til now we have cruised in summer months but now retired. Seeking advice about Fall and winter cruising in Channel Islands, particularly Santa Cruz
Island. Have heard fearsome stories of Santa Ana blows.
Any advice re safe harbors other than Chinese Harbor and Forneys? Will Coches Prietas provide protection?
Also are there any particularly good sources of warning info. Any particular VHF weather
We'd be grateful for local knowledge. Bob Baron East of Reason II.
