You might want to check out the book by Jimmy Cornell: World cruising routes.

Here is a link to his website that answers some of routes in question.

Obviously there are a lot of variables and the route you are inquiring about is a very difficult route.
Cruising sailors typically choose specific windows and specific routes that work well and are mostly downhill (with the wind and currents).

"The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labours hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective". -- Henry David Thoreau
