Welcome to Cruiser Log,
THe National Hurricane Center issued the following yesterday
NOAA: 2007 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook Update
Issued: 9 August 2007
Realtime monitoring of tropical Atlantic conditions
It looks like the predictions for an abnormally high season of tropical storms are holding.
Therefore , depending on how long you are chartering for, and what sort of communications you will have on the boat. If you are sailing close to the point of hire then with the long range forecasts available, you should be able to return the boat long before trouble arrives.
However, your best bet is to prepare for a optional charter where there are no tropical storms.
