best time to sail from Seattle

I just purchased a 52'' cutter in Seattle and plan to take her to San Diego this summer.
Can anyone suggest a book that explains the best time to leave the area and what to watch out for. I do not live in the NW area and I am not familiar with the weather patterns and what to lookout for when leaving.
Thanks

And we apparently do not exist by the response he got..

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
