Hey, we're talking June here, less than 5% chance of a gale.......this is a bread and butter run for me (and I guess a lot of other delivery
At this time of year, as a first timer, I nwould suggest a start from either Plymouth or Falmouth. If the weather
is reasonably settled, don't worry too much a about 'weather windows'.
Cross the channel, cross the TSS and pass Ushant between the TSS and Ushant in the inshore zone. If you don't feel brave enough to do that, stand out west a bit further before heading south.
After that, straight down to Bayona, one of my favorites, maybe a trip up the rias.
You'll pick up northerly winds down the coast of Spain
and have the current
with you as well.
I reckon on 6 days from Plymouth to Lagos on the Algarve in a boat like yours, if you don't stop.... about 850 miles, but if you have the time stop a while.
Hope this helps
