Get a copy of Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes and also of the pilot charts for the North Atlantic. I am pretty sure JC covers that route (not sure about the timing). I think what you are going to find is that if you want favorable winds, you need to get north to get east.

2300 NM . . . light winds.

Let us know what you find out!
