Sure it is doable if you can wait for good weather windows. Doing it on a schedule in a smaller [ sub 40 ft ] boat may well result in at best a very uncomfortable trip and at worst a broken boat.

Watch this video, CLICKY it is from the USCG at Morro Bay which is one of the places you might enter if you planned to day sail up the coast.
I learned early on to not sail where birds are walking or surfers are waiting.
