Having done both coasts a couple of times, and both directions. Best idea is to be organised to go either way, and don't be totally fixed on a date. The weather will dictate which way is best, and you won't make the final decision until the day before you go.
Don't get hung up on which way people on here say is "the best". Probably the only advantage of east over west is that there are a more places to stop if you want/need to. The weather forecast that YOU decide to go on will decide it for you, and it is not compulsory to get snotted.

Yeah, Southern sailors have no idea what busy is!
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Just returned from sailing my 31 footer RNI. Weather forecast should dictate what is best. In our case worst section was small leg from East Cape into Hicks Bay. Found weather data accurate within reason but west coast means you are too far out for updates so are relying on old data.
