would be better then being flogged. If you were to be mainly travelling north to south island hoping would it be better/less choppy than just heading across??

It depends on what your goal is. If you want to see the west coast
of NA, then others have given good advice. If you just want to get to the US East Coast
, then you can also have a great trip, and probably an easier one, by going with the prevailing winds across the Indian Ocean
, around the Cape and up the Atlantic.
