Cruising route to Micronesia


I am a novice sailor considering an eventual cruise to the Pacific. I have heard of the so-called "Milk Run" to the Marquesas, but I am curious if there is a commonly used route to Micronesia. Also, does anyone know of any resources for learning more about Pacific tradewind routes in general?

Cruising route to Micronesia

Jimmy Cornell’s “World Cruising Routes” is a good reference book, and the “Pilot Charts” for the South Pacific will provide the noted details (Average wind speeds & directions, on a monthly basis).
