Made that trip several times from Ventura on down, i suggest staying close to 10 miles off shore. are you going to be stopping into port at night? if so calculate 50-60 miles per day if not comfortable sailing at night. use Ventura Harbor, Newport Harbor (maybe Catalina Isle)and plot your ports to that figure. when pulling into port use channel 16 on the VHF to contact the Harbor Master. inform him (or Her in some cases) that you are looking for a berthing slip for the night. they are all very helpful and some will come out to greet you.
