Is the Santa Cruz side of the bay easier to navigate than the Monterey side?

In the summer with the NW wind the Capitola side is more protected. When the wind is out of the south west as in the winter though the Monterey side is calmer.

You got it xatly right, I used to have a restaurant on the beach in Capitola and I can tell you it gets ruff over there in the winter. Flooded twice in five years.
But the fishing was great out of the kitchen!!
