This week on Good Jibes, Nicki Bennett reads an article from the August 2020 issue of Latitude 38 sailing magazine. Hear marine surveyor and US Coast Guard veteran Mike Pyzel describe why the Channel Islands offer all you could ever ask for in a cruising area in “Destination: Channel Islands.” Follow along and read the article at https://www.latitude38.com/issues/august-2020/#62.
Here’s a brief excerpt:
Santa Anas are sudden northeasters that howl off the mainland from Ventura and Oxnard, and strike the north sides of the Channel Islands — especially Santa Cruz and Anacapa — with fury. These winds nearly always spring up after sunset. The biggest danger is the steep seas that pack into all the anchorages on the north side of the islands.
