I can't believe how many "sailors" talk about fighting the wind
to get back to the PNW.When I sailed to Mexico
with my folks many years ago, we never even considered this.Hawaii is the sensible route
I was always told.With modern weather
forecasts,better understood sailing seasons,routes,GPS and all the rest,why not?We had no problems at all,and the trip to Hawaii
has to be some of the best tradewind sailing anywhere,along with mild temps.The homeward leg was a little more miserable,but still not bad.In 2 weeks we will embark on the trip south.
