Panama to Marquesas in February

We are considering sailing from Panama to the Marquesas in Febuary. How risky is this plan?

The only risk is getting to the Marquesas before the cyclone season has actually ended. It normally lasts from December to the end of March, but cyclones seldom get as far east as the Marquesas... but occasionally they do!
