Although Harbor Sailboats only goes to Mission Bay, many of the San Diego clubs go to Catalina for the cruising course, so you could still make it out there in 2015! I am told September is a great month and if we can get everything put back together, we might still make it this year, ourselves.
As the previous poster said, you could also look into clubs in Oceanside or Dana Point
, to start out a bit closer.
Or, you could come over and help us install our new toe rails and get a feel for what it is really like to own your own boat
