Re: Route Planning: Marina Del Rey to Channel Islands
From MDR to Channel Islands harbor is about 48 miles. It should take you about 10 hours. The are guest docks in the harbor to stop at. The trip to Santa Cruz (Chinese Harbor) from Channel islands is about 28 milse direct. To sail there, with the normal winds will be about 33 miles. The sail there can be quite nice. I would not stop at Paradise cove and then head to Santa Cruz. It is 19 miles from MDR to Paradise cove, And then 55 miles to Santa Cruz.
