I have no personal knowledge of that area, so I'll leave it to others, and just tell you that in 1983, my husband Jim and I took a 30 foot Sparkman & Stephens Yankee 30 to Hawaii
and back from California
. I believe that we were as safe as sailing can be; and the weather
prediction is much better now.
You can usually trust weather predictions two to three days in advance, but longer is really (IMO) fantasy. And if you live in an unstable weather pattern area, maybe only for that day. If you keep a written record
for a while, recording the f/c and what actually happened, you can get an idea how good it is for your location. If you do that, do sample all seasons.
There's a huge difference between a 15 ft. daysailer and a 25 ft pocket cruiser
, so knowing what kind of boat you want to buy would help us evaluate the situation.
