I agree, Dave.

That was nasty and uncalled-for, doubleu.
You know you don't have to be a member here. You can take your books and learning and pilot charts and historical hurricane data and be mean over on Sailing Anarchy...

Re: Where do people go and when during Hurricane season?

Hey, i do not care as was only after some advice as we are looking to head over and need to make sure we have all contingencies accounted for.

Still going to ask question here as most people are very helpful, but of course not everyone is all the time!

Re: Where do people go and when during Hurricane season?

Zanshin,
Thanks for hour comments. Very sensible.

Our normal routine was to go South to Grenada and put the boat on the hard, then go to Canada for the summer. Covid hosed that plan. We hung out in Dominica until mid-Jjne then had a nice sail to Beaufort. We now have a reservation in Puerto Del Rey for this season, the reason being that entrance into PR and travel to the USA is PERCIEVED to be more assured.

We have been through a few hurricanes in Delaware. The danger is not mind blowing wind but the surge over topping the floating dock pilings. My sense is there is more chance of hurricane damage in the USA because they can sweep up the coast, and also Noreasters can be as bad. Having seen the aftermath of Irma and Maria in the Caribbean the chance of impact may be lower but the level of impact is catastrophic. Not something we want to experience, ever.

Hopefully we will never see same level of travel restriction we had due Covid in 2020 and 2021. That will preserve the option to go South.

This is a discussion forum, people come here to ask questions, provide answers and discuss them, not be told to look elsewhere.

A lot of folks don't know what resources are available to answer their questions, so they come here.
