If time was not their master I would suggest Scotland to the Canaries in August/September then Canaries to Bermuda in Aprill/May and on to NE USA.

Another factor is that it is a Brigantine and may not got to weather all that well so downwind or at least a reach is to be preferred.
Ah yes, of course, I was judiciously ignoring the Brigantine bit wasn't I ?

Hey Centaur, I know the rally thing seems a sensible idea but I must say that the idea has absolutely zero appeal to me.
