Books on Cruising the Pacific

I was just wondering if any members had any good Book Titles they would like to share about cruising the the pacific. My preference would be Baja/ California up to BC over to Hawaii sort of thing. Any stories of people who have sailed this area, or and good guides on currents, tides and seasonal winds.
thanks every one.

Try looking up the Pardeys and the Hiscocks, and Hal Roth.

Re: Books on Cruising the Pacific

Ron -
Check out some cruising websites for starters. I am in the wrong ocean, but my first impression is that it is difficult to go S-N along the pacific coast. Perhaps Baja - Hawaii - PNW is the more suitable route (but that first step is a doozie). The cruiser's forum search engine is great (though SN is, of course, the way better forum P-)). Have fun reading.

Take a look at Brian Fagan's Cruising Guide to Central and Southern CA. It's been a good reference for me.

Re: Books on Cruising the Pacific

I wasn't really suggesting any particular route, I am just interested in the of the PNW, west coast and Hawaii.
