Re: 2 CREW WANTED FT LAUDERDALE - AZORES

Being the height of hurricane season, it's going to be interesting trying to pick a weather window. It's getting active out there.

Re: 2 CREW WANTED FT LAUDERDALE - AZORES

Yep you are right. One of our skippers just arrived in Jacksonville and hurricane Erika is not far behind. But with a possible weather stop in Bermuda it's not far between where they have access to good GRIB files /forecasts. More important all our skippers have a tracker so in our office we can see where they are and send weather info and routing advise to their sat phone.

Oh, and this skip has over 400.000 nm under his belt and still uses a Sony world receiver (about USD 150,-) and records the forecasts, uses SSB and is teaching the first mate how to use a sextant for his final Ocean exam. But he's oldskool :-)

And just as a reminder for all that think the other season is safe, be aware of the deep strong low's in the N winter. They can be as bad but your don't see them coming like hurricanes that originate in Africa. Beste months for less experienced sailors are April, May and June.
