Re: Channel Islands sailing

I'm a big fan of using ActiveCaptain to check stuff out. You can see reviews from other folks who've already been to the the Channel Islands. I've sailed to Catalina and posted my reviews there. It marks anchorages and marinas that other people have used with current information, and you don't need to shell out bucks for a cruising guide, or take it to work and show you're obviously dreaming about the upcoming trip.
Another great thing is you can use the chart layer to see NOAA charts of the area, you can even plot a course for your journey.

Best of all, it's free, it's really worth checking out.

1. You should checkout the free cruising guide at Sail Channel Islands as well as "Coast Pilot."

2. Though the weather in the Channel Islands is benign and the averages shown in Coast Pilot seem lovely, beware. We get gale force winds and snarly seas periodically throughout the year. We also get pea soup fog from time to time. Stay on top of forecasts and pay attention to the special weather announcements on channel 16.

3. Familiarize yourself with current NOAA charts. There is a busy coastwise traffic lane that you have to transit and sailboats are not the stand-on vessels there.

4. If you want to discuss any of this, give me a call at 805.750.7828
