So, let's have a recap.
What time period are you able to go?( from earliest departure to latest arrival)?

What is your current range under normal operating conditions?

From where will you start? to final destination? Via Azores?

Think if you left Saint Johns the ice issue would only be a risk for the first few hundred miles as the water is much warmer the closer you get to the Azores. I have a 44' Nauticat motor sailor and that is a route that we keep considering since we only carry 225 gallons but of course have 2 60' sails. Agreed after being an airplane pilot for 30 years that the bladder tanks could shift at the wrong time and OH BOY we got a bad weight and balance issue.
I would not travel with any ice. Period.

Leaving in mid to late summer, end July, you could hop from NF, Greenland, Iceland, Faroes, Shetlands, Scotland.
I once planned that route, ending in Bergen, Norway.

“I would not travel with any ice. Period.”

Not to mention a little (or a lot) of fog.
