Re: Northerly passage on the other side of the Pacific in November?
Hal and Margaret Roth did a circuit of the Pacific from California but not if my memory serves me well via Hawaii. I don't have the book with me but I'm thinking they went south via Marqueses maybe, across the Pacific and then up to Japan.
Not the route you want to do but it might be a good start.
