Expert advice for your Atlantic crossing

Yachting Monthly readers are being offered a 30 per cent discount on a specially organised ocean forum which will advise on how to prepare and execute an Atlantic crossing.

The recently launched Transatlantic Forum Weekend on 11-12th May will be held at the Cruising Club’s HQ in London’s Limehouse Dock.

It has been organised by the Christmas Caribbean Cruise chief John Simpson who is offering £35 off the normal £75 fee to YM readers.

Whether you are planning to sail the Atlantic this year, next year or if have only just started dreaming about an Atlantic crossing – this weekend will provide lots of useful information to make your trip a success.

The forum will showcase the Christmas Caribbean rally as well as a variety of speakers, all of whom are experienced ocean sailors, eager to share their in-depth knowledge and experience.

Expert weather forecaster and routing specialist, Mike Broughton, MD of, will headline the weekend along with 15 other speakers who will cover subjects as diverse as buying a blue water cruiser, power management, provisioning, stowage and cooking at sea, cruise planning in the Canaries and what to expect when you arrive in the Caribbean.
