Tell me everything you personally know of Luperon DR, .......................... please. I'm thinking of spending 2020 hurricane season there.
There are no rules for cruisers that prevent you from sailing to Grenada for the hurricane season and minimizing your chances of having to go through a hurricane or two, and returning as far north as you wish after the season to restart your cruising plans. I assure you that should you go through a storm in DR, you'll wish you were in Grenada!I'm sure it is and I'm thinking that for the next year. Trying to slow down.
If that's even true, it must mean the eye wall hasn't gone over Luperon. Hurricanes are typically hundreds of miles wide and there's no doubt it's been hit by hurricane force winds as one passed close. Even tropical storm force winds do damage and threaten an anchorage.Never been a hurricane hit Luperon. ......
I think the confusion here is that the DR gets slammed by major hurricanes pretty regularly; however, the storm tracks are always from the South, and they have to go over huge 10,000' high mountains and 200 miles of island to reach Luperon.Now people here want to “win” the thread so much they are looking up hurricane tracks, which shows nothing really. No hurricane has hit Luperon since records started being kept so that’s over 150 years. The last hurricane that got close resulted in only 60mph wind in the harbor
