Weather Information for the Caribbean

Former BCA member Francois Dubuc is currently sailing with his family in the Caribbean.

A family member who is also one of his safety persons is requesting information on preferred weather/marine websites to keep better track of him. They recently ran into a weather system that disabled both their sails and their engine while enroute to Jamaica. They made repairs to engine and altered course.

Wondering if any of our members have experience and suggestions for that area. They are currently on a course for Isla de Providencia, East of Nicaragua and expect to make landfall in the next 10 hours, at which time no doubt they will be reassessing their situation.
