San Fran to Los Angeles NON-STOP

I''m planning a non-stop delivery between San Francisco Bay and Long Beach aboard a Pearson 424. I appreicate input from people who''ve actually made this trip. I''ve heard the horror stories about exiting the Golden Gate and rounding Point Conception. i''ve also heard people say, "oh it''s easy; you''re going downhill."

I''d love to hear from people who''ve actually made this trip. Any special insights would be greatly appreciated. How big a boat were you on? How far offshore? Did you have shipping lane or commercial fishing vessel concerns? How long did your trip take? Average speed of your boat? Mostly sail or power? Thanks.
