Long Beach, CA to Channel Islands Harbor

Hi all. I pulled the trigger and bought a beautiful Catalina 36 in Long Beach Harbor (Alamitos Bay). I have two days to get her up to Channel Islands harbor. Any ideas?

I can go to Catalina and spend the night at the Isthmus, continuing the second leg in the early AM. Long Beach to the Isthmus is about 25+NM. The second leg is about 60NM.

Another option would be to make the first destination Santa Barbara Island, instead of Catalina. First leg would be about 45NM, with the second leg being close to that same distance.

Has anybody out there spent a night at SB Island? If so, where did you anchor?

Any comments?

Thanks, Bill
