There isn't a cruising guide that covers the eastern Pacific Ocean. Cruising guides generally cover coastal areas or specific islands... If you want to know how to get from Portland, OR to Maui, HI, then what you need is Jimmy Cornell’s book, World Cruising Routes.

It would probably help if you said what kind of sailboat you had, as well as what experience you have....it doesn't sound like you have much sailing experience from your post. But vague, poorly worded questions tend to make anyone sound like a special ed student.

Also, highly recommend you read the post in my signature, since you could probably benefit from what is written there.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

you are right sailing dog i dont have alot of experience. but the people i am going with do have and have made the trip many times before. I am ex-navy as well. that is why i want to learn as much as i can so i dont sound like a special ed student. as well as to know what to expect.
the boat is a 33' morgan outisland.
one man is in his late 50's also ex-navy helmsman
one man is in his late 30's and is a rn and has raced sailboats from seattle wa. to hi.
and of course you have my wife who knows nothing about it
and myself with little experence. but love for the sea and everything it has to offer

If you're on a Wintel PC, download the Sailing Directions for the Pacific from HERE. Unfortunately, the Pilot Charts for the North Pacific aren't yet available for download. I would highly recommend you purchase Cornell's book, since it discusses most of the routes and what some waypoints should be, as well as what time of year is best for the trip.

You can get the Pilot charts from nga.mil/portal/site/maritime You may have to navigate through their less then logical menu to find the pilot charts... but there are several other pubs you will want to down load for Nada while you are at that site. Such as Bowditch, signals 102, the pilot charts, Radio Aids pub 117 and a few more.
Cruising guide for the Oregon/Washington Coasts and the Cruising Guide for Hawaii.
The Pacific Ocean you will have to navigate on your own but pay attention to where the Pacific high is at. Because that will tell you where the winds are from and the strength of them.

Boasun--

Just FYI, my link is to the nga.mil site. Unfortunately, the North Pacific Pilot Charts, which he'd need, aren't available yet.
