Re: Sailing from Oxnard to Marina del Rey, CA
It's a pretty easy sail. Just stay to the east of the traffic lanes, but far enough off shore to catch some wind (if the wind is light that day). Once you round Pt. Dume the wind may slack off quite a bit, so to keep a good breeze, you might want to sail a little further south than a direct course to MDR would normally take you. When you get the the MDR entrance watch the traffic and take the line other sailboats are taking as they enter, as it can shoal a bit around the edges of both the north and south entrances.
