Crossing the Pacific in 2016

Hey all, looking for a bit of input by people smarter than me. Don't worry, that's almost everyone.

Myself (Lagoon 380) and Tate and Dani on a Westsail 32 ( - are considering jumping the puddle next year. Naturally, since we're "ready" this year, it's decided to be an El Nino year and indications are that it will be a tougher year to cross.

Can anybody with experience crossing in an El Nino year, or with expertise in weather/wind/currents chime in?

The route would ideally be Panama-Galapagos-Marquesas (where I'm planning on making use of a long-stay visa).

Input much appreciated, sources and data more appreciated.
