First while it is “technically” hurricane
season, early storms are usually weak and as I recall
are south of the Virgin Islands
Second schedules are dangerous things. Like someone posted, consider engaging a delivery captain
to either bring the boat
down. Or back up.
You would sail down on your schedule, and sail the Bahamas
until a specific date. On that date you and the boat
would be in Nassau
(cheap flights). On that date a delivery captain
(cough cough like me) and crew would meet the boat and assume command for delivery. You spend the night in a hotel
to wash up and fly home the next day.
The issue with you sailing back, is there can be a storm that does not follow the norms. One may need to head
to FLA, SC or some other port to duck a storm. With a schedule you do not have the flexibility.
It sounds like the vessel is well equipped, so raising a volunteer crew should not be an issue.
