Re: Hawaii to SF question

Well first I'v never done it and probabaly never will. I prefere to stick to the coast.
i was looking a aquiring a boat in S California and bringing to BC.
conventional wisdom is to go to hawwaii and then from hawaii to BC. Rather than sail up the coast against the wind.
I sailed up the coast against the wind but only from Oregon.

So if you go to Hawwaii from S California wind is behind you. to return ither beat back against the prevailing wind or Head for Jaun de fuca. stop in washington or BC then head South with wind behind you to california.
