Re: Bareboat Charter in September

Why not try the Caribbean after all and make use of travel insurance to mitigate your risk of losing vacation time (and money) due to storms. The prices are much lower, the anchorages less crowded, and the weather forecasting systems are quite good to allow the charter companies to recall the boats in time should a storm approach. The tropical waves depart the African coast about every two weeks, and some of those turn into depressions, then storms and finally a very few grow into hurricanes and some of those might touch upon land. While September 5th is the height of the season, you still have at worst a 2-week window.
