Re: San Diego to Honolulu

The captain is experienced. He is an instructor or training to be an instructor right now. Also he is a Naval Academy grad with experience on navy ships (not sure if that translates to sailing vessels but it's something). I know he has sailed extensively in the Pacific near Japan on a bristol 32 but I don't know what his off shore sailing experience is. He told me he expects it to take 20 days. He is going to continue on the trip all the way to Japan via Hawaii and Guam. I don't know if he has any other crew yet. I don't know what his sail inventory is. The boat has an auto helm.

Looking at the Pilot Chart... July is definitely preferable.

I am not able to read weather charts but I will take a look at the NOAA website later.

I am dying to get some sailing in and ready to pull the trigger on these plane tickets to California but I'm worried about getting back in time. So yes, you are right, I am looking for validation. The captain is going to call me tonight to go over more details. I'll ask about the route, weather forecasts, other crew, etc.
