Re: Sailing from British Colombia to Fiji - advice needed

I crewed on a 47 Fomosa Porta Vallarta to Hilo Hawaii. Boats of this size are very stable. We had force 7/8 at one point, 30-40 knots 12 foot breaking sea's. The 36 footer near us had to turn down wind and run with it, we took it out quarter no problem but a little unnerving at the time. Bring lot's books and ear plugs. We went through 60lb's of floor baking bread,cookies,cakes etc. It's boring out there most of the time. The most exciting thing each day is what's coming out of the oven! Cheers and Good Luck Dave
