April/May, or October/November. Tropical storms run June through October, and October November you can get some decent gale conditions within ~300 miles of California. The winter is cold. Jimmy Cornell marks it as route PN11 and has a lot of other information about it in his book. It's very much worth the forty bucks. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/007...SIN=007159289X

Thanks guys, looks like a good starting point. I had heard the best sailing window was around the end of may-start of June, but would that also be the case for powering?
