where i am, which is not pnw by any stretch, is paradise. we talking no weather problems until furycame season. then there is a problem. until then--no problema. no headwinds and no bashing . in gom, there was always a choice--bash or sail in comfort to a destination. i do not foresee me taking the bash path if there is a respectable choice. i will not be going to pnw nor will i be sailing in coldville, anywhere on this earth.
there is no need to beat to windward here.
I have made many cruises to the South Pacific but have always been glad to get back to paradise ( The BC coast)
In could be anywhere in the world right now if I wanted to , but I prefer to be here in paradise.
