you should ask.
I just returned home last night from that very trip on a Dragonfly 35.
Dragonfly Trimarans by Quorning Boats of Denmark | DRAGONFLY 35 Presentation
10-30 miles offshore
for the whole trip with a crew who had never sailed at night or ocean.
Two days of beating into a Southerly from Neah Bay to the Oregon/California border before we got NW winds.
Newt was in VHF
contact with us for a bit at the start.
Made it from Port Ludlow to Newport beach
in 7 days averaging 5.7 knots for the trip.
Hit 17.6 knots one time with lots of 12 to 15 knot
Even flew the assy chute for 30 hours at a stretch in Northern CA.
Mendocino was 45-50 knots.
Due to barberhaul line accidental release (bad factory mounting of jam block), we had an accidental gybe of jib
and almost capsized!
Having done the trip twice before, I'm glad we cut that cape close in (2-3 miles off).
Pt. Conception at 2AM was a walk in the park compared to Mendocino.
