We want to sail to the Azores from St Marten West Indies in first week of May, what will be the best route your recommend us?

You have two options:

(1) Sail to Bermuda and then from there to the Azores, trying to get favourable westerly winds close to lat. 40 degrees N.

(2) Sail directly to the Azores - but take enough fuel as you may have light winds or calms.

Both routes are well described in my World Cruising Routes - the latest edition was published last month.
