Newport-Ensenada: Any Advice for a First-Timer?

I am entering the Newport to Ensenada race for the first time with my Jeanneu 36i coastal cruiser and a crew of 5-6. The boat has a traditional mainsail with 2 slab reefs, a 130% roller-furling genoa, and a crusing spinnaker with sock. I'm considering entering the Cruising w/Gennaker class to get more experience with the asym spinnaker.

Tactically, I plan to made for a waypoint 3-4 miles outside the Coronado Islands, then see what the winds conditions are from there to Ensenada.

Any suggestions or advice?
