Advice for CA to HI transit newbie?

Hi all,

I'm a relatively green sailor -- I've only sailed ~500 NM so far, but have worked on the water as a fisherman -- but I'll be crewing (along with 3 others) from Cali to Hawaii in a week or so. This will be my first bluewater passage and I would greatly appreciate any advice vis-a-vis safety (anything I should double- and triple-check before we go?), preparation (what should I know fore- and backwards?), and tips on going trans-pacific. Thanks!

When are you leaving and from what port?

Remember your dramamine patches. Also remember to leave all your issues behind. And when in doubt, shut the hell up and listen to the more experienced. It always pays to get along and to just let things go when they bug you.

Other than that, you probably already know about all the life saving equipment, so I'll leave that to you. Just leave your ego on shore and enjoy the experience, as you'll learn a lot.
