Sailing California's Coastline

Sailing California’s Coastline (2009)

ISBN 978-0-615-33705-0
by Jim and Pam Duvall

Sailing California’s Coastline details the adventures of the authors as they sailed from Richmond, California to Catalina Island with many, many, ports of call on the way. For four-and-one-half months they cruised the central and southern coast of California looking for excitement and enjoying the wonderful natural environment of the golden state. While doing so they entered many of California’s ports, sailed to almost every island in the Channel Islands, and visited many anchorages. This book answers the questions that so many have asked of them. Namely, how do we safely travel in this rugged, seaborn world?

Each chapter chronicles one leg of their journey. In each chapter, not only do they describe their experiences but include many items useful to the cruiser. The authors review the services available at each port,  transportation, entertainment and shopping, restaurants, and even natural features. Phone numbers and addresses are included. This is a all-inclusive guide for the cruiser or cruising family.
