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

Re: transatlantic passage

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

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
