Conditions for going to the PNW from Mexico via Hawaii depends on where and how big the Pacific High is. This can vary from month to month and year to year.
.
What worked last year may be impossible this year. As an example last summer the PNW had the most sunny and warm days EVER. This year summer has been the coldest EVER.
How far north you must go before turning East is a guess, until you get out there.

The Clipper Route

There is also the Clipper Route. It's kind of like the Hawaii thing only you don't go that far.
Leave Cabo San Lucas on Starboard tack headed basically SW. About a hundred miles out the wind starts to swing more north than west. Keep following the gradual wind shift for several days and you will end up on a NW coarse about 300-400 miles out. Come about to Port Tack and close reach to Los Angeles.
Once you are off of the Continental Shelf and away from the influence the land mass has on the wind it's great sailing. Plan on 10-12 days.
