Trade winds cruising in an El Nino year

Assuming that one had planned to begin an extended passage in Nov. from the U.S. East Coast and assuming that the current forecasts for an El Nino hold true, I know that:

Hurricane activity will likely be suppressed in the Atlantic
But in the Pacific, the effect seems less clear. Will the trade winds crap out? Will it be even hotter in the tropics? What, if any effect, will the warmer sea temperatures in the eastern and central Pacific have on the seasonal patterns there as regards conditions in general and cyclones in particular?

Anyone here done the Pacific in an El Nino year?
