Catalina Island is an easy day sail from the mainland. It shouldn't take more than 5 or 6 hours from most of the nearby mainland harbors (everything between Marina Del Rey and Dana Point), maybe 10 or 12 from San Diego. Of course, that assumes that you have enough wind, and it's not right on the nose. April can be a little stormy, but is generally pretty nice weather.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
