Good article from The Guardian on sailors trying to make it home during Covid-19

Long journey home: the stranded sailboat in a race to beat the hurricanes

"Covid-19 has marooned people living on small boats worldwide. Now hundreds of anxious sailors are preparing to make dangerous voyages home across the Atlantic."

This is the best article I have seen on the mainstream media so far.

Indeed the conditions are ripe for an early and active storm season because the waters of the Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico are at record high temperatures and there is no projected formation of an El Nino which could derive shearing winds aloft that disquiet the formation of cyclonic depressions.

And it appears the first named storm may be brewing as I type.

Hurricane season may get early start near southeast US

“In every year since 2012, except for 2014, there has been at least one named tropical system during May,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said – and this year is likely to be no different.

AccuWeather meteorologists anticipate a system to begin brewing near South Florida on Friday before strengthening into a subtropical or tropical system offshore of the Southeast coast this weekend. The ocean water is just warm enough for tropical development.
