Be very sure to have confidence in predicted wave size and wind and do not go if it will be too rough. Practice sailing to San Pedro and back inside the breakwater and then outside several times then practice using the compass on a trip to Redondo Beach and back. If you are comfortable with your compass by then you will be fine for the trip to Catalina. In July it will be easy to see when you are 6 or 7 miles out. (In Winter you might see it clearly when you leave.)

Got a radio?
