Sailing Book Recommendation

Hello does anyone have a recommendation for a sailing book on rotes and the times of years to utilize those routes. I need info on various area like when is the best and worst time to sail to Hawaii. Would also like a little background and technical reason why. thanks

Awesome book, read it cover to cover, but be aware, it is very technical and detailed.

Hydrographer of the Navy published a book called Ocean Passages for the Woirld. Mine is a 1973 copy. don't know if they even publish any more. You can also get [or used to be able to get] charts with wind roses for given months for any ocean in the world.
