Cruising British Columbia again this summer is no longer in the cards I'm holding. So we're planning a trip up the California coast to Port San Luis which lies about 160 to 170 n.mi. by sea from Long Beach. This trip has a more challenging reputation than, say, a cruise from Long Beach to Ensenada, MX--although close to the same distance. Going to Port San Luis one has to pass by the "Cape Horn of the Pacific." But even the true Cape Horn has weather other than horrific at times. For folks with experience along that stretch of coast between Pt. Conception and Port San Luis/ Morro Bay, what's the typical fog situation around mid- to late May? I'm looking at departing around May 18 to take advantage of the full moon as I expect to make some distance during the relatively calmer night(s).
