Re: Bashing North up the US Pacific Coast

Going all the way to Hawaii would be a big mistake, as you would be giving up a lot of easting, which you would have to bash your brains out to hold onto after leaving Hawaii. Halfway or much less would give you the same advantage, with nothing more than close reaching. That is the clipper route. Came home to BC, non stop from Mexico that way.No problem, no windward work at all.

I heard about that somewhere - it referred to you specifically. How far out do you go before turning North?
