I helped deliver a 35' sailing trimaran
mid May several years ago.
FWIW, the owner had subscribed to a professional weather service
, and I'm really glad he did.
After two days of beating to weather
to grab a NW wind
system, we JUST managed to stay in the tail end of it for the duration of the trip to Newport Beach
The whole 1250 mile trip from Whidbey Island took 7 days.
