No problem, you're looking at an easy 24 hour ride. Avalon is just about 1/2 way and makes for a good spot to relax for a while.
You can expect S to SW winds until you get to Catalina, about 10 mi north of the island it'll die, then shift to about 270 degrees. Plan on motoring. The seas and wind funnel down the SB Channel, so you'll be against wind and current.
Winds usually pick up from 11am to 3pm with the ocassional sundowner. Watch the high pressure. If there's a high over the 4 corners you might luck out and get N to NE winds, but that's not normal this time of year. Expect fog, and take care, especially in the shipping lanes into Long Beach and in the Channel where north and south bound run parallel to each other.
Just checking in.
Where ya'll keep'n the wimmin 'round here?
