Guess you will be coming down the Irish Sea? Last time I did that trip, I followed along the s coast of Ireland and when Finnisterre was more or less due south, went for it. Only about five hundred miles so Mebbe bit under five days to the best tapas bars in Bayonna!

If you have time to wait somewhere like Cameret, you only need a 3-day window of course.
Or even just a bit further south like Benodet or even Loctudy.
That way, you don't have to time your departure to catch the tide to clear the Raz du Sein.

And don't forget most insurers want you clear of Biscay by the end of September.
