Easier route

Assuming you want to sail down wind and current you need to get at least as far south as northern California before you start across to Hawaii. That takes advantage of the Japan current and prevailing north Pacific high pressure zone. Search for a free program called Ugrib on the net and download it. Study the wind and pressure movements for while and you will see how they normally flow and it will give you a clear picture of what happens.
