I have done 5 westerly crossings at in October and have had relatively smooth seas on most of them, however, on one cruise we encountered hurricane force winds for three days with appropriate rough seas. Generaaly the weather can be very mixed sailing down to the atlantic isles although I cannot recall having much rain following our passage from either the canary isles or maderia to the caribbean. The temperatures increase daily throughout the journey and expect temperatures of 28-30C in the shade by the time you reach your destination. I am sailing on Artemis to the Caribbean depending on the 30th October 2008.

SNAP so are we.I am a bit worried about being at sea for so long. Have only done trips with one day at sea in the past.

We learned this little rhyme when growing up in Kingston: June -too soon(first hurricaine month) July - standby (hurricaines likely) August - you must (prepare for hurricaines) September - remember (to standby) October - all over (last month) .
