Omatako will become famous soon enough
I just ran a direct trip on VPP from Texas to Panama testing all months (appears to be November) for the best wind direction/condition. It looks like this:



I don't think one should do a straight trip firstly because it is nearly 1500nm an also you will be passing some great cruising grounds but this shows that even in the best month, the wind isn't great.

Just an idea, you need to do deeper research.
