I will be crossing from the west coast
to the Marquesas
in about a year. What is the best route
for a powerboat to take advantage of light winds, favorable currents, avoiding lightning
in the ITCZ, etc? World Cruising Routes gives some guidelines but from the perspective of a sail crossing. Is there a different strategy for powerboats? I can do anywhere from 150 to 200 miles a day depending on wind
. Any suggestions?
