Tropical storms

Right now I am in Virginia waiting for not one but two storms to clear out of the gulf of Mexico. My plan was to sail up here from Florida, then go down to the Pan Handle in the gulf and help sail a friend's boat over to the Bahamas and then come back here to continue on the Great Loop. Well, June IS the start of hurricane season and right on cue, a couple of ugly storms popped up.  Take a look at the passage weather forecast for this Tuesday.
That orange blob is 35-40 knot wind and I'm not too keen on sailing in those conditions so I  will sit here watching the exciting America's Cup racing in Bermuda waiting for this soup to clear.
