Steve,

Learning to sail out of LA Harbor has some advantages. The winds are very predictable:very light wind in the morning. You can learn at slow speeds while you need to think about everything you do. Winds pick up around 1:00 so stay out later when you get the hang of things. Winds get much stronger from 2:30 to about 5 when you feel you are ready for it. After that start sailing to Catalina (four hours each way) and later to the Channel Islands for some long runs and more experience.
