Big Crossing

I currently own a new Jeanneau 64 and have it moored in Southern California. I'd like to set my next crossing for the Philippines, so my question is... has anyone made the crossing on this forum yet - or know anyone who has that they could put me in contact with ?

Time of year - duration - route etc. Or possibly, anyone putting a caravan of vessels together, to possibly make the crossing together. Any info or details would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Big Crossing

I would start by reading one of Jimmy Cornells books on ocean routes and timings.

Re: Big Crossing

Lots here have plenty of experience with the Pacific routes...

For local info, start with the puddle jumpers...

It's possibly the slowest traffic here today ever... This post will liven up a a bit when more show up...

Here's a recent thread that might help
Leaving from Seattle to San Francisco then across the Pacific
