Heartbleed Bug—AAC is Safe

There has been a huge brouhaha in the media in the last day about a security bug called Heartbleed. We  want our members, and others who have bought items from us, to know that your financial information is safe and has not been compromised.

You see we don’t store, or even see, any of your financial information here at AAC. Rather when you sign up for membership or buy something from us, the whole financial transaction is handled by PayPal which is part of eBay, very safe, and has not been affected by the Heartbleed Bug.

Just thought you would like to know.

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.
