You have at least these options:
Some boats opt to bash to SdB (motoring, motor-sailing), where from it is quite OK to Receife and then have your pick and if you are early, you may opt to go via the West Indies, if late - cut across to the Azores
and on to the United Emirates of Europe
;-), This is what my chartering (Patagonia) friends do.
Other people will venture offshore
and either come back around Receife or head
for Ascension where from they will follow as above. (This group can be called Intrepid Sailors),
The easy way would be to go to Cape Town
and then back to Helena, Ascension, receife or right up to the Azores
, these men
are called 'lame sailors' or 'cruisers'. But if you start in April then this option is out.
If you need more info/support, feel free to send me a private msg via the Forum. Just make sure you give me some details - boat type, crew strength, departure point and time frame, target point, your limitations.
