cornado 27, pacific coast sailing

Does anyone have expirence sailing a cornado 27, in coastal waters. I am looking for an inexpensive boat to start sailing off the coast, and on large rivers (Columbia). I have found several cornado's in my budget, but I do not know anyone with any expirence with the cornado 27. My first voyage would be a long one possibly San Diego, CA to Asoria, OR.

any information would be wonderfull. thanks

Zollcat,

You might find this interesting:

LA to Portland Nov 2008

It's kind of long but covers a lot. Your question is about the boat, not so much about the trip, which is not to be taken likely at any time, especially
in the winter months.

Here is another one:

Going North, San Diego - Crescent City

You didn't say what your experience level was so my apologies if you already
know all of this

Casey—

I'd point out that a trip from San Diego to Astoria, OR, is not one to be taken lightly. Point Conception is a place with a well-earned and deadly reputation for a reason. The Pacific coast of the US, once you get above Point Conception is a nasty lee shore much of the time with very few accessible harbors if the weather gets bad.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

BTW, there are a few members on this forum that have owned a Coronado 27, including the Administrator. You can read what they have to say about the boat here.

thanks

I am in a planing stage at this time. my plan is river crusing on the Columbia the out to sea. I have no time frame to complete my voyage. I am just looking for information at this point and a cornado 27 became avaliable for a good price.

I appreciate the posts so far and any more that show up. Thanks for your help.

Hey Casey; you should give Mike a call here at the yard. He's had alot of experience sailing off the Cali coast, 805-654-1433 ext18. You could always sail to Ventura & truck the boat to OR. We load & offload boats regularly. Good Luck & happy sailing, Kim-Ventura Harbor Boatyard
