Silly question Ping but where would you buy a Chilean chart atlas in Chile?
Cheers

Just be aware that Biscay can be nasty late Sep and Oct as storms barrel in from the Atlantic. You have enough experience to cope and the boat likely a good size, but it could be bouncy and wet if you are caught out.

Earlier in Sep would be my choice with the current and generally northerly winds blowing you down the Portuguese coast. Lovely warm downwind sailing.
