Hey guys! Leaving for SD this thursday at about 3pm. Planning on sailing through the night and making a straight shot to SD, arriving from around 7-9am . I am going to try for a police slip, which is first come first serve. As far as tides go, I have some research
to do to find out when the flood tide occurs, etc.
The only thing I am not happy about is the fact that I will be sailing through the night, which means I will not see much of the California
coast from the ocean perspective. I guess I will have to time my return so that I can see all of it. As far as charting goes, how necessary is it? I am chart-competent and know how to efficiently read them and navigate by use of them, but I have never actually put my skills to use on a boat, since single
rarely require them.
Last question! Does anyone recommend any nice coves or exploratory destinations?
After all, who's not a sucker for beautiful nooks/coves?
