from the Canaries to Gibraltar

Hi all,
We intend to go from the Canaries to Gibraltar.
What is the best route and the best month of the year for favorable conditions?

you have SW winds right now!
these occur when a low pressure area is above the Iberian peninsula,these generally happen over the winter months,can get quite rough but favourable for getting north.

the prevailing winds most of the year are generally NE and can be pretty tough to get north with
