Sail Los Angeles in Marina del Rey

Catalina Island Sailing ASA 104 (3 Days)

Every sailing destination has its own unique charm and attraction. Regardless of how far and wide sailors’ curiosity and ambition take them, they always remember their first…sailing port that is!

Thousands of new sailors learn to sail in Marina del Rey every year. Ask any Marina del Rey sailor why he or she loves to sail here and you will probably get an earful.

You will definitely hear comments about the weather. You can’t beat Marina del Rey weather for sailing.

On average, there are 284 sunny days per year in Los Angeles. The July high is around 80 degrees, not too hot but hot enough. In the winter months, you might see an occasional rainy day, in the mid-50s. The next day it could be sunny, in the 70s. You can sail nearly every day of the year in Los Angeles, Marina del Rey.

Marina del Rey sailors have another gigantic benefit, predictable winds. Spring, summer and fall, you can expect wind out of the west, building from 9 A. M. to 11 A. M. to a high of about twelve knots. Recreational sailors the world over would kill for these predicable, consistent and favorable winds. We have them.

Then there’s water depth. You simply can’t run aground off the Los Angeles coast…that is of course unless you wind up on the golden, sand beach that lines our shores. If that happens, you have bigger problems.

There are more reasons to sail in America’s Most Sail-Friendly Harbor but that leads to another question. Why sail with Blue Pacific Yachting?

“The pessimist complains about the wind;
The optimist expect it to change;
The realist adjust the sails.”
