Re: North america to central/south america

It's worse than winds not ideal, it's potentially deadly. Most insurance companies will not allow their insured's boats to be in that region between June-October so most of the nice boats are gone then. That means that if you're trying to sail through there you'll be in a dangerous place on a boat with no insurance. Either it's un-insurable or the owners have no money. Either way, it would be better to fly 2-3-4 legs and hit the highlights.
