Hello, Joe, and welcome!
Chris Parker's weather advice
is highly regarded by cruisers. I used his services myself on a ten and a half day passage
from St. Thomas to the Tampa Bay area last November. After giving a general weather briefing for the SW North Atlantic cruising area he invites "sponsors" to check in for individual routing advice. He uses different frequencies at different times of the morning to facilitate good SSB reception
I found is advice to be very accurate and very helpful. In particular, he advised us of a relatively narrow weather window between fronts for crossing the Gulf Stream
, which we hit perfectly "on the run" up the NW Providence Channel. If we'd been a few hours later, we would have had to hang out in Bimini
for a couple of days, waiting for the next opportunity.
I used his "passage sponsorship" option, rather than the annual "sponsorship". It was about half the annual fee.
