what's with the Sea state off the Ca coast.
My girl and I recently bought a cal 28. We've previously chartered 28 and 32 ft. boats in MDR each time we've gone out the waters were very choppy and the winds were very inconsistent. Being relatively new to the area I'm wondering if these are "normal" conditions or have we just been unlucky. I of course checked the Marine weather broadcast numerous times prior to our departure and got w=WSW 10-15kts w=2-4ft at channel is. and 10kts or less w=1-3 at MDR. Also we stayed mostly inside 3 mi. except for a run to anacapa.
