Default What's across the ocean?

If you're on a beach in the Americas, where would you reach if you sailed due east or west?

Ignoring the Bahamas (since it says "across the ocean") I'd hit the Canary Islands before I hit Western Sahara.

Portugal? But there's already a large, thriving Portuguese community *here*.... hardly seems worth going.

Spain.
Or Japan, if I cross the country first. I'll have to go north. I want Ireland for my fictitious sail.
It would be quite impressive to sail on that straight a line, though.
