We are currently in the process of planning our circumnavigation
and I am getting some conflicting information on best time to cross the Atlantic.
We will be coming out of the Med and originally was planning to cross the Atlantic heading for Bermuda
and then East Coast
of US (New York) however it seems as though staying this far up is tricky with managing winter storms and the hurricane
We are now planning on staying south and heading for Caribbean
Jimmy Cornell's book suggests best time to travel from med to Bermuda
is June/July but then states tropical storm season is June - Nov. I am guessing the June/July gives you best chance of avoiding late winter storms and early hurricanes.
Other guides talk about crossing the Atlantic in December but I guess this is for crossings further South I.e. the Caribbean
which would be less effected by Winter then the US East Coast
Would love to hear advice on crossing Atlantic and whether or not I should write off East coast of US and just head
straight for Caribbean.
