Sailing from LA harbor to Catalina in January

Hi All,
I want to sail my 30' Clipper to from LA HArbor to Catalina in January with my two teenagers (Jan 1 to Jane 8, 2020). I have sailed to Catalina before in the summer (about 15 years ago) but not in January. Can anyone share their January SO California experiences with the weather in Dec/Jan. Planned on Anchoring near 2 harbors. any other suggestions/information/opinions would be helpful.
THanks!
Louise

Re: Sailing from LA harbor to Catalina in January

I did it in a Catalina 28 in March. It was a great trip, but the water was definitely cold.

Just as we were getting back we had a little squall of 30 knot winds. I'm not sure if that's typical or not.


Do report back on your trip! I had a great time and can't wait to do it again.

Re: Sailing from LA harbor to Catalina in January

watch your weather well.... can get weathery in january. cold wet n wild weathery. winter storms coming
south from pnw are sucky in a boat at anchor or on a mooring. high winds and breakaways happen, so make sure your weather window cooperates
