This is a simple problem to be simply solved. First, figure pushing it will take 2 months. That would be a big shame, as you need to stop to smell the roses. The route
to the Canary Islands, Canary Islands toward Cape Verde
Islands, latitude sail to Leeward Islands
.) Time - November - December
Route from North/Central America or Caribbean
, Europe. Time June/July.
Somewhere between 500 and 1000 boats do this route every year.
Now, what should you do. There are two "rallies" East to West and West to East called the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. The East to West will leave from La Palmas Gran Canaria in the Canaries
in about a month, then next year at the same time, etc. Boats are always
looking or crew. So my advice would be crew for someone (you will not get paid and most likely have to chip in for the food
budget) to get the experience before you do it yourself.
