I can't comment on what sort of trip the journey over would be like as I've not done it yet! By all accounts there are quite a few people from here who set off in both directions with reasonably easy planning and don't have any issues.
The harbours up north are a bit sparse, Ramsey is your closest, and Ramsey is affectionately referred to as "Basra" by one of my friends...a bit excessive but you get the idea!
If you have the time I would go a bit further down, on one side about half way down you have Douglas (the capital) or if you go the other side down to Peel (the holiday town with the good ice cream)
Let me know closer to the time, I can get more detailed info for you if you need.
