atlantic crossing

hi all,

I'm a yacht sailing instructor from israel, looking for a a first cross of the atlantic (europe to caribbean), i thought to catch a flight to the canaries and find a yacht over there, but i still have a few questions -

is the first half of february already off season, or should i be able to find some boat at this time?

what are the good places in the canaries to find boats at? (the biggest marinas/fuel stops).

thanks.

The most active spot would be Las Palmas on Grand Canaria. Probably 90% of the boats are gone by February, because their motive is to spend the winter where its warm. However, crossing conditions are still good, and the boats that do leave later may have been delayed and lost their original crew.
