Fullcastle, I can't believe you are going to sail 10k miles and not stop in Europe
. We do have MacDonalds, icecream and coke-a-cola or superb French wines and cheeses, Welsh lamb or British beef, depending on your needs. Oh and 4000 years of history
of building things in stone
Presumably you will want the Portuguese trade
winds to go south down the western european coast which would be down wind
sailing to the Canaries
. Get the timing right and the Azores
high will take you back across the Atlantic at the end of the year.
