Hello, Years ago I brought my Herreshoff 48 back from a years cruising on the east coast
to British Columbia
. We came through the canal in April, sailed up to Puntarenas ,Costa Rica, then sailed a great circle route to Hilo Hawaii. I seemed to recall
that was about 4200 sea miles. It took us about a week of light airs to get out into the trades, then we flew along in grand style, truly one of my favourite offshore
passages. After enjoying Hawaii for a couple of months we sailed north around the Pacific High and home to Canada
. A great trip! I guess you have to ask yourself how much you like sailing but this is a common route to the PNW without bashing into headwinds and seas. There is the old clipper route up the coast, standing well offshore
and taking advantages of any wind changes to make your northing, but this takes more consideration and tactical sailing skills.
