In an extreme effort of trying to find something good out of it, I'm going to notice that:
2) at least towards mid week it goes easterly, so there might be some spots that will be semi-sheltered
4) the next calm day is going to feel like heaven
Wind maps at noon are starting to be quite colorful, better get familiar with these: Orange: 20-25 knots, Purple: 25-30, Red 30-35.
North Pacific has a distant NW fetch. Jet stream is staying high and the mid latitudes are dominated by a high pressure that will slowly move east. I circled in black the area of strong winds inside which we will be immersed pretty much the whole week.
South Pacific has a little fetch NE of New Zealand that could produce something for us. We'll find out in 6 days.
