Summer in the Caribbean: Safe to Cruise?

Hey folks,

I'm planning a trip from Puerto Vallarta to Brazil next year, and I'm thinking of leaving the boat (42' Jeanneau) in the Virgin Islands instead of sailing back up to Mexico. Here's the question: what's the general wisdom on trying to sail up from Venezuela to the Virgin Islands from July-August? Is this the height of foolishness, or can such a trip be safely made with prudence and a careful eye on weather?

Cheers,
Stephen
