Re: HELP: Being relocated to Las Vegas?

All the harbors in So Cal have active racing fleets. from Las Vegas, newport beach is the closest, Dana point and long beach are only a little further. to get to other harbors you will have to go thru LA traffic, its is easy to get on as crew as most boats are looking for experienced people. Long beach is the windiest. the further south you go the less wind. Long beach is a big harbor with a break water and a few big ships. Newport is a very nice small bay with homes on the water and never a place to park your car. they race the small one design in the bay and PHRF and others in the ocean. Dana point is a small harbor with little place to sail in the bay but is is only a very short sail to the start line in the ocean and no big ship traffic and very smooth lighter winds. Dana point is the laziest and most relaxed harbor, the furthest from LA with plenty of car parking.
