Sailing to Catalina Island
My buddies and I just got our 1977 Ericson 27' up and running, now we're getting a little ambitious and want to try to go to Catalina Island this weekend. We are all fairly new to sailing but do have some experience. We'd be leaving King Harbor (Redondo Beach) saturday AM and probably power our way up there and moor at Two Harbors. We'd need a shoreboat as we don't have a dinghy yet, but I have a campsite reserved for us to stay the night at. The next morning we'd get up and sail back.
One of the guys is getting nervous that we aren't ready for this, but I think we are... We have the Boat U.S. towing thing, so we can always get dragged back by them if we need to! We also have life jackets, vhf radio, and all that jazz just in case.
What do you think, is this doable? There's a microbrew fest so hopefully we can get there!
Thanks in advance,
