I'm currently in the Canadian Gulf Islands but will return to Long Beach in mid September. Once back in LB, I usually get a monthly sail fix on a Newport 30 out of Oceanside. It's a bit of a drive but the price is right - $40. I usually meet up with a couple of San Diego County buddies in Oceanside - but a 2nd Long Beach sailor would get me into the carpooling lane on the 405 and eliminate the only thing that I don't like about the Oceanside connection. We usually sail on Wednesday's or Thursday's. Let me know if this sounds like something that you'ld be interested in doing.
