Great name (It is my sons name). You will have to take in to consideration the time frame as to when you are going to to this trip. The sail from BC to South of Santa Barbara can be quite unpleasant. Typically it is behind you but the weather
can be cold and the wind
very strong. Most boats leave the PNW in August or September with the goal of reaching Southern California
in the later part of September where you can cruise
the Channel Islands. Most of the passages from BC to SF require more then 12 hour of sailing. From SF to Santa Barbara the coast is pretty rugged and the weather
cold. From there it is considered unsafe to head
much below Ensenada Mexico
till the end of October because of hurricanes. The trip from San Diego
to Cabo San Lucas is approx 750 miles so if you take your hull speed
multiply by 80% and then the sailing hours you will get your daily range (6.25 knots *80% *12 = rounded for ease of math 60 nautical miles(nm) per day) So straight sailing time is 12.5 days with no rest stops. Going back is upwind and can take a lot longer. For instance we were wind
bound for 5 nights last year when I brought my boat back. Also the Pacific coast of Baja
is not that warm and can be downright cold.
The trip can be done in 5 or 6 months but not safely outside of hurricane
season or the winter storms along the Pacific coast.
As alternatives: buy a boat in BC and sail the PNW or buy a boat in So Cal
and sail down to Mexico
or buy a boat in Mexico and sail the Sea of Cortez
and the Mexican Riviera.
