Routes and safety Sailing to South America from Tx
I am learning to sail. Once I get some proficiency I want to sail from Houston Tx to Brazil.
As I like to plan well ahead I was hopeing from some suggestions.
What route might be best?
Should I avoid cuba? Avoid Hatti(as cost guard is there to keep earth quake from fleeing their country?
How long does it take to make the trip. Is this something I can do in a month?
What is the best time of year to make the trip?
If my experience is not enough, How might I locate someone sailing down there and get onboard to help out. Perhaps, a payed learning trip?
