Depth of coastal fog?
My wife and I are quite possibly going to be leaving landlocked Idaho and moving to the Oregon coast, North Bend, Oregon to be precise.
Having always been landlocked and only sailed on lakes, and for a week off San Diego, I have some questions that are probably kind of common knowledge to coastal people, but I must ask anyway...
When over there a few weeks ago it was foggy in the morning and nights, then the bank sat just offshore for the daylight hours. How far out, typically, does one of those fog banks last? Can a person get out past them for a nice daysail, or are they typically too deep.
Thanks for any input. When I asked the questions in the past about getting feedback and support on this net due to the lack of support of landlocked people in Idaho, one of the common responses was "Move to the ocean." Okay, we most likely will be in the next month. The big house is sold, the extraneous toys (expenses) are gone, some sailing training is under the belt, and we are going for the additional experience that we can gain having a boat and sailing in the ocean, experience that we can''t gain on inland lakes. Little by little we are getting closer to casting off. Still years away, but we will get there.
Thanks for any input and additional knowledge.
