Sea of Cortez launch sites?
Hi, me again. Another obviously landlocked question. I own a 22'' Reinell Keelboat. Been lake sailing in Idaho as much as the wind allows. My wife and I are talking about going to the Boat show in St. Petersburg and also taking some sailing instruction while there. Hopefully offshore. We were then thinking of towing our miniyacht (sorry, had to) from Idaho down to the Sea of Cortez this January or February and cruising for about 2-3 weeks. My question. Are there any recommendations for training facilities in or near St. Petersburg, Florida? And what would be a good destination for me to aim my truck for to unload our Reinell into the Sea of Cortez? Oh, a 3rd question. Is there anything that I should know, like that time of the year stinks weatherwise in the Sea of Cortez? I would sure appreciate all the help I can get. Trying to scratch this cruising bug that I have as well as I can, without being too foolish.
Thanks again for any responses.
