A useful list of - www - weather resources for the western South Pacific compiled by Rory Garland of SY Streetcar. Of interest for those currently on their way to the region from Panama and also from NZ and Australia.

For those cruising the tropical south Pacific and trying to make decisions based on the weather, the number of different weather and climate resources available can seem daunting. I hope these notes will help make some sense of it all.

I’ve spent the last 2 years in the region (including two cyclone seasons) and have had the opportunity to consider most sources of information.

The ARC is a ‘must do’ for many sailors, and attracts over 200 boats and 1200 people every year to sail 2700 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia.

The ARC is for everyone; families with children, tough racers,cruising couples, big boats and modest boats. Crossing the Atlantic together, but having their own adventures. More than just a boat race, the ARC is about friendships made ashore in the two weeks of pre-departure activities continued over the radio net at sea. It’s about arriving in Saint Lucia to be met on the dock with a rum punch and a chilled beer, knowing you have achieved something fantastic - crossing an ocean on a small sailboat.
