I'll be headed due North out of the Philippines
from South Negros (Port Bonbonon) to Eastern Taiwan
in a few months. Waiting to get well into the NE Monsoon season, as it would currently be miserable taking the trip upwind.
I was originally planning on taking the western route
around Luzon and heading straight north, but upon looking at a map of currents
, it may be better to head
around the eastern side.
Also, because in this part of Asia
there is an overwhelming amount of fish
nets, crab pots, etc., we want to do most of our cruising in the daylight hours. And we intend to island hop up the Batanes islands that are between Philippines
Am I overthinking the current
? Which is a better path? I have a list of typhoon refuges (p. 27)
posted here from Conant M. Webb, because I know that 'tis the season. Anything else I should be made aware of?
