November is still a very active Typhoon month with historically some of the worst like Yolanda happening in November
Also, by November, the NE Monsoon is usually the default wind
, starting to surge up to 25-30knts as depressions cutting across S China
Sea enhance the flow until it surges all December and January.
If your planned route
was to go via PNG & East coast
of Mindano Philippines
then up thru the islands to Subic you have 2 options.
1.Get to SUBIC and wait for a break, but don't count on it.
2. Enjoy the best cruising season in the Calamain Group and west coast
of Palawan till April when you have perfect conditions to follow the Cherry Blossom Season towards Japan
