I am intent on crossing the Atlantic now, many say it should not be attempted. After talking to an experienced skipper
he said it's not a problem as long as you stay far south, passing through the tropical depressions close to Cape verde
. Effectively taking the mini transat route
Does anyone have any suggestions? I do have a sat phone
, providing I get enough warning it should be possible to evade them, although in a small boat like mine it is unlikely. First hurricane
last year was in June, they are expecting even more this year.
Appreciate some knowledgeable opinions.
