I don't have much to add on the timing and the trip, but one thing that stands out to me... Being the military, what happens of your late? Things can and do go wrong, and can lead to trips taking way longer then expected. Another Sailneter (vega1860) made the trip from Hawaii to Washington a few years ago, and I think it took them something like 50 - 60 days, double their estimate IIRC due to an issue with their forestay and not being able to use their headsail most of the way.

Usually I'm on the "just go for it" side of things, but I'm curious. Should something happen and your late getting back, do you end up arrested for being AWAL? Or is there some understanding with your superiors that this could happen?

Good to know there's some room for being reasonable there. A long time ago I had a friend in the reserves who loved it when they got to go chase down AWOL folks. :) Just made that come to mind.
