anyone who has done this trip and get peoples take on sailing during this time since it is huricane season.
As far as hurricanes go. There are lots of annual predictions about hurricanes for any particular year. They are most always wrong. Hurricane
season nominally ends Nov 1st but it does not dictate when they happen. The really nasty ones tend to be in September. Rules of thumb with storms is fine when you don't plan on being around any place in the area.
No matter when you do go you can get serious weather
that won't be hurricanes. being able to handle even a gale force storm is not something easy, simple or to be taken lightly.
If you were going to buy a boat to go in September I would have done so by now. You can't shake down a boat in a few weeks then take off for 4 months and expect to understand all the issues. That says nothing of the crew. A crew needs as much time preparing as the boat does.
If you just plan on going along for the ride I would consider getting some experience in before that. You might actually be able to be prepared or at least understand what you are contemplating far better.
