Sailing from Fiji to Seattle

Looking for any route advice for sailing from Fiji to Seattle. My plan is to leave Fiji in mid-April and make stops at Samoa, Penrhyn Island, Kiritimati (Christmas Island), Hawaii, then Seattle. Has anyone sailed this route?

Re: Sailing from Fiji to Seattle

We've sailed HI to Calif. twice. Your leg HI to WA will be hard on the wind into the NW'lies. Try to leave HI early in Sept. before the gales start. That's a long old beat, over 1200 mi. of northing, depending on which island you leave from.

Who scorns the calm has forgotten the storm.
