bluwateronly is on a distinguished road
This is toughest time of the year to do that trip. I did it in a 26' Ericson but it was in the summer. I would worry more about all the fog at this time. It will be cold and wet and you will be doing alot of motoring unless, you go half way to the islands and then tack back in. This is not recommended unless you have a very seaworthy boat. You can harbor hop the way up and there is lot's of info and cruising guides available for more information. I don't know your sailing experience or what shape the boat is in so- can be done and don't think point conception is easy it is not well, aleast for my trip it was not. I anchored at Cojo and left at midnight and it was still a ride I won't forget. Make sure you give the coasties a float plan. I had a great time but I won't say it was easy like the big sur coast with nowhere to anchor and after 36 hours on the tiller I was really tired.
