And where after Ireland? Our original sketchy plan was to head out to the Azores but re-reading the pilot books the skipper realised we’d missed the boat (excuse the pun) as the Azores sailing season is June to Mid August. So Portugal and Madeira seems a more sensible route weatherwise meaning that currently the plan is from the South of Ireland to take the first forecast of northerly winds to head south past Biscay and Finnisterre to Bayona or beyond and aim to be in the Canaries in October.
