Omatako BTW, how did this thread end up on the Piracy board? Has the US Coastguard gone on holiday

Or maybe the moderators have?

imagine2frolic I have single-handed Baja to S.F., and it's a tough sail, motor, motorsail. You can get offshore several hundred miles, and it is easier. You, and the boat will take a beating, so both need to be in top form, and knowing how to hove-to will get you some rest without going in..........i2f

That must be a tough trip. A whole book about an 800nm sail?

Jeez, good luck with Baja to Puget Sound (Seattle) (about 2000nm).

Nothing wrong with going to Hawaii. A nice place to stop and relax and observe the untique clothing of humans along the beaches.

CapnBilll There is a California to Baja race. One of those guys should be able to give specifics of the return trip. Having boated on the Pacific coast, (Oregon). Going well off of the coast and coming back in at an angle sounds like a plan.

Valiente I've read Capt. Vancouver's logs on this passage, and it's no wonder the man was prone to depression. Drake's comments, by contrast, indicate that he had an extremely rare episode of decent sailing.

CharlieCobra One of, if not the NASTIEST delivery trip anywhere. Good luck with that. Very limited weather window and it's a bash all of the way.
