John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for twenty years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 12 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.

    I sailed back from The Caribbean , arriving in Milford Haven on the night of 20th-21st of August 2009 and would very much like to see a surface pressure chart of the north Atlantic for that time and ,if possible for the two weeks prior to that. Can anyone suggest how I might be able to acheive that ? Thanks in advance.
