We started to leave California (Sausalito) on June 28th, but had to
come back due to "crew problems". We left a second time, from
Monterey, on July 10th. At a stately 7.8 knots, we arrived in Hilo
on July 21. The first couple days we had wind and seas off of the
starboard bow, but after that it was literaly "fair winds and
following seas" the rest of the way. We basically just set course
along the great circle route (240 degrees True) all the way.
So, while this might not be the best time to go, it was certainly a
good time for us to go. Your mileage may vary!
