transatlantic passage

Greetings all,
Does anyone have any information on which ports I would be most likely to get a position as a crew on a boat doing a transat trip (US or Caribbean to Europe).

I'm a competent crew member, can steer, watch, cook, clean, anchor. I know my lines and knots. I'm currently in the Bahamas but I'll be going back in Florida in a few weeks. Should I head to Fort Lauderdale or up to NY, Maine to look around for a boat?

Best,
Dimitri

Boats are regularly leaving from the New England coast to catch the westerlies to Europe.
