Default Should I rack

Doing a 4 week wine kit, and i am a the bottleling point, the only thing i'm leaving tonight for about a week for work. Now can I leave it in the secondary for another week without any problems? Should I rack it one more time in an other secondary?

I wouldn't rack it if it's only going to be a week or two. Even up to 8 weeks, I'd probably not rack. After that long, though, if I wasn't bottling, I'd rack and age it in a new carboy just to get it off the lees.
