Oz to Japan to Alaska to Seattle

Hello! I am considering purchasing a boat in Australia and heading up to Japan from there, then across the N. Pacific to Alaska and then down to Seattle.

I am curious if anyone on here has done this? I have read some about the timing of individual legs... but I am wondering about a comprehensive timing plan, taking into account typhoon season in Japan, etc.

When would be the earliest/latest month I would want to leave Oz? I believe I would need to leave Japan by about mid-June at the latest to head for Alaska.

Any thoughts/input?

Sounds like a great trip and I may be following you in a few years. Would like to hear from the others, but in the meantime start with the Pilot Charts and see what they tell you:
