Re: Channel Islands sailing

The Northern islands are beautiful and you should be ok as far as weather goes. Keep your weather radio/vhf on it does get rough up there. The back side is mostly open depending on if we are getting a South swell running, but this is more at the end of Summer. Whales are still passing through and in the "gap" between Annacapa and Santa Cruz the blues have been known to stay all summer feeding on krill from the upwelling offshore. May gray is what we usually see this time of year, low coastal clouds burning off as the day progresses. Enjoy.
