SJ34 is on a distinguished road
The usual routine is:

Arrive at boat Friday. Remove sail covers and hose the beach sand off the deck. If the weather is nice we'll have a relaxing sunset/evening sail. I keep the tanks topped and engine ready to go so we can be out of the slip in less than half an hr.

Saturday morning have a light breakfast and cast off. Sail Pierpont Bay and maybe down to Oxnard for lunch or dinner.

Sunday morning the covers go back on, any maintenance that needs to be done is done then and home we go.

The routine changes if we're going out to the islands or up to Santa Barbara. On longer voyages we'll cast off around 8 or 9am on Friday and return with the evening winds on Sunday. If we leave much earlier than 8 we'll just be motoring longer before the late morning winds pick up.
