New to Sailing and gotta move my boat

Hi all,
I need some advise. I just bought a Catalina 27. I dont know how to sail but lifelong dream to learn. I need to get my boat up the Sounthern Calif coast about 50 miles (Dana Point to San Pedro) I have had a survey on the boat and everything look fine on the boat to sail save having the bottom of the boat cleaned which I will have done. As I do not know how to sail, my sister and i were planning on motoring it. We were going to take 2 days to do it as we didnt want afternoon winds (I heard the santa ana winds made for not so calm waters in the afternoon) WOuld this be a good idea or should I hire someone to sail it? THe engine is an Evinrude 8HP 2cyl. Any advise one could give would be great.
