Just a quick update: Trip was great, no sailing, but good weather
, no issues.
Revised times, routes for anyone else making the same journey north.
Left SD/Terminal Island @ 8:30, arrived 11:00pm (14.5hrs)
: we avoided the kelp beds off of Pt Loma, which takes you farther south than possibly anticipated (AT&T Welcomed me to Mexico
Ha!). Turned N right around the 'SD' buoy (about 1.5hr after departure). From there it's about 55nm straight to Dana Point.
Left Dana Point @ 9:30, arrived MDR 10:30pm (13hrs)
: Dana Point to the west corner of the LA/LB Northern traffic lane's turn. Cut across traffic lane to 3nm off Point Vicente lighthouse, to the 'PV10' buoy, to MDR, avoiding crab pots and anchorage in Santa Monica Bay.
Didn't push the engine
. Generally made around 4.5kts with wind
on the nose and into swell and current
