DSneade is on a distinguished road
All good advice. I have crossed the San Pedro channel many times and also find the morning winds are very light so motoring at least halfway is usually required to get there in a reasonable time of day. I almost always sail back, but motor out from the island wind shadow before setting the genoa. By the way, Avalon is a great destination in winter; fewer boats, fewer people in general. Check for special events though, since fishing tourneys can cause the mooring balls to be all taken. North of the casino, the conditions can be very rough even in summer. I was banished there a couple of night this past summer. Happy Crossing!
