Re: Route Planning: Marina Del Rey to Channel Islands
I have not gone directly from Marina Del Rey to Santa Cruz but I have sailed that area. You need to give Point Dume a wide berth. The winds blow a lot harder around that area and the seas get rough. If you cut it close, as on a direct route, you will have the wind and the current on your nose. The seas build to a high short chop. It is not a comfortable place to be.
