HyLyte,

Thanks for replying.

I of course have done some due dilligence already like pull up google maps, measured the distances on sites such as active captain, my chartplotter has the california coast, and also purchased the cruising guide. I have done a fair amount of research on the ports and inlets (bays) in the area. I am looking for more detailed information

I was looking for first hand experience here. Your info about the Santa Anna winds and Cat Harbor is appreciated. That is the kind of specific first hand info I am looking for. I am hoping some of the sailnetters who keep their boats in the area or those who have sailed in the area can give me more specific information like that. (waiting to hear from mitempo and others).

As far as the santa Annas go, I noticed that the winds their now are affecting the near coast very lttle and concentrate on the mountains, passes and canyons (they have had 60-100 mph winds this week). After they are out of the shadow of the coastal range are they predominately SW and stronger 10- 15 miles offshore?
