Grateful for views or where to look for routing info for above. Not sure whether I need to bash to windward more or less on the rhumb line or go out into the Atlantic to get a wind angle to sail close reached ? Of course, the latter adds considerable distance but might be much more comfortable and quicker?

Thanks to all, Alan

I'd do the straight line - you may well get a fine reach or even a beam reach out of it. If there is any North in the wind it will be a great ride.



Have a look at the North Atlantic Pilot charts for wind probability, approx 70% chance of favourable direction.
