We have been running up and down the Southern California
coast preping for our journey to La Paz
. When we left San Diego
harbor we sailed up to Oceanside about 9 hours, very little wind until the afternoon, so you motor
sail a good part of the journey.
From there, rest up overnight then head
for Avalon another 8 hours or so, on the water
. When you get to Avalon, hail the harbor ch16 and they will come out to direct you to a buoy for tie up. (if you've never been their before ask them to guide you to the buoy...it's easier that way, they have hundreds)
Make sure you have your head
switched to HOLDING TANK
. THEY WILL be coming by to drop the yellow dye in the tank...if it leaks
, you get a huge fine and not allowed back for up to 2 years.
As my wife just mentioned, (snoopy girl) you could do it in one sailing...propably about 14-18 hours.
