Its safe to go the Cape Verdes now, its out of the hurricane paths. Its just not safe to leave from Cape Verd ids to the Carib yet

I am watching the water temp in the caribbean basically waiting till the little black line of 26 deg C is below the area
Tropical Weather : Weather Underground
This ain't working well at the mo, so I hope it free falls in the next 2.5 weeks.... and then the water warms up so I can swim in the BVI's!

(This is either very scientific, or I'm raving again )

Well, you are right and wrong. Basically one can go to CV any time of the year.

A BROAD LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED ABOUT 250 MILES WEST-NORTHWEST
OF THE NORTHERNMOST CAPE VERDE ISLANDS IS PRODUCING DISORGANIZED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE NOT CONDUCIVE FOR
ANY SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT OF THIS DISTURBANCE FOR THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS. THERE IS A LOW CHANCE...10 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM
BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES
TOWARD THE NORTHWEST AT 15 MPH TO 20 MPH.
One would need to be navigating without a plotter to end up 250 miles WNW of the islands coming from the Canaries. Although, mind you, those 'real' sailors who only use sextant may get lost due to cloud cover??

However, we are curisers. First rule: Never go to sea if you think Galoshers may be required! A Monday take-off that some people are talking about, with Passage weather is indicating 40 to 45 knots tonight... and that just makes stuff bumpy still in 2 days, but its 800 miles there so it'll flatten out. As long as there isnt another one

I like staying in bed untill charts are completely clear.

This year we have had surprisingly high percentage of CV TDs. Or else the NOAA monitoring tools have been seriously upgraded.

Like a month ago a friend sailed from here to RSA and they encountered exactly this. I will send him a msg and ask how it was. I hope they did not get too pasted.
