I don't have any knowledge of the specific route you are asking about, but like anything I'm sure it is more dependent on the sailor and his/her vessel than it is on the route/sailing area. A calm inland lake can be suicidal for someone who doesn't know what they are doing. On the other hand expert sailors with sound vessels venture into the roaring forties and furious fifties and live to tell the tale. If you would provide a little more information regarding your experience and your (intended) vessel it may be easier for someone to give you a useful opinion.
