Tropical Storm Arthur

So,


We are talking Covid and guns.


Why are we not talking Arthur?

Or is the CF search function so geared that it returns the usual mix of self-excitation with Rocnas and social media pulp while missing the phrase searched for?


Tank you for guiding me to the relevant thread.



Cheers,

What exactly is there to say? Because unless you are deliberately sailing into its path, it is pretty much a non-event. There is nothing to say...

Even you had nothing to say about it...

Yep. I quickly looked up what they think. Many MetOffices believe a higher than average activity this year. A summary of those early expectations here:


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_A...rricane_season


End of May events in that area are common. Sort of like a warning sign in late May/early June. And then there is often a relative calm period before the peak months roll in.


Cheers,

A tropical storm in May brushes Hatteras:

and may now visit Bermuda:

and it is a non-event?


Or is this a non-sailing forum perhaps?


Sorry, but I don think it is a non-event. Not to the boats headed from the West Indies to the Bermuda and onwards to the Azores.


You have clearly forgotten the carnage there was the other year.


Maybe because we talk Covid but we do not talk weather, wind and tides anymore.


I am on the EU shore but even here a storm that affects the Eastern seaboard of the US is an event. Blame it on my educators at the maritime college.



Cheers,
