Howdy and Welcome to the Forum Johnny and Conny!
Skipmac mentioned the difference in weather
and water temps between the two cruising destinations.
What is considered "warm" or "cold" can be relative. One of the coldest days of my life was spent walking for hours by the frozen canals of Den Hague in December. Brrrrrrr!
The water in the Northern Pacific seems cold to me, but spending time sailing in <50*f water is fine if you have a nice dry warm berth, warm clothing
, and warm drinks (coffee, tea, etc.).
But, I wonder about the wind
in that area in the summer. I seem to recall
someone on this forum mentioning typically light winds (and lots of motor
sailing) during the summer. So I would check on that with the local sailors.
In the Pacific North West, pack a rain suit and tall rubber boots, because of the rain, mist, and chilly (cold) water.
In the Caribbean
, pack a swimsuit, sandals, and sunscreen.
I would enjoy either and hope you have a great trip!
My Suggestion: Consider a trip to Alaska
. It is WILD and there is wildlife about every where you look. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
