I'm still a beginner, so my first ambitious destination is Catalina Island, about 8-9 hours from my port, Marina Del Rey. I've been to Catalina with the ferry once, and found the island so charming that I've made the resolution to return there on my own.

Anyone been there? What are your other favorite destinations in SoCal? I hear the Channel Islands are also nice, but I've never been...
Using units incorrectly really winds me up. A knot is a nautical mile per hour. You can't be 30 knots away from anything; that's like saying something is 50 miles per hour away. It's nonsense.
