Not sure about the San Diego area but going north would be Oceanside (forget it, no slips), Dana Point (year wait list), Newport (slips available but $$$). Huntington Beach is not sailboat friendly (bridges) unless you have a tabernacle (sp) mast. Then the three marinas of the City of Long Beach, Shoreline, Rainbow and Alamitos Bay. I was on a wait list for 6 months before I got my slip in Shoreline. Then I got on a list to move to Alamitos Bay where I am now, I was on this list a year. Your best chance for a quick slip is one of the marinas around San Pedro like Cabrillo Marina and then get on a list where you really want to go. Try this website and just call the marinas you are interested in The Marinas Guide. Good Luck.

The optimist expects the wind. The pessimist complains about the wind. The realist adjusts the sails.
