California

CALIFORNIA is a state in the US, bordered by Nevada to the east, Mexico to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the west. With an 840 mile coastline, California is the most populous and favourite tourist state in the US. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, and San Francisco. San Diego boasts beautiful beaches, canyons, and sailboats; San Francisco has those famous hills, cable cars, Fishermen’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and many beautiful parks; and of course Los Angeles is famous for fabulous shopping, Hollywood and Disneyland.

California can be enjoyed from one end to the other, from the seashore to the desert, from the mountains to the forests. Yachting facilities throughout California are of a high standard with many marinas or places to anchor. For its cruising attractions alone, California increasingly has become a favourite among yacht owners and charter clients alike. The scenery, the fishing and shoreside highlights that abound along the Californian coastline from the sub-tropical to the sub-arctic are a powerful attraction.

Major California ports, roughly centered between the storied cruising grounds of Alaska and the Panama Canal, together have become a hub for an array of support services from complete overhaul to provisioning, with San Diego being the centre and ably represented by the San Diego Superyacht Association. The region’s many ports also serve as stopovers or departure points on the way to favoured destinations to the west, north and south. Other yachts have come to stay, joining a local armada that calls the West Coast home, at least seasonally if not year-round.
