Does anyone know where I can get information on sailing north from Baja to Puget Sound. I did it once as a kid 40 years ago but the memories are faded.
I am considering buying a boat in mexico and sailing it back.....
Any comments?????

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.

Take the correct routing

Everything I've read indicates the trip from Baja to Puget Sound indicates that it can be a rough trip unless you take the proper routing, that is via Hawaii!

:D:D:D:D:D

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.

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

Was it Bill Crealock who wrote a book on a delivery from California to Seattle ?

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

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

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

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

Or maybe the moderators have? :D
