'Clouds' Badham addresses packed house

The Cruising Division was delighted to host guest speaker Roger ‘Clouds’ Badham on Wednesday 22 March. He addressed a packed house, despite the inclement weather!

He began in the 70s forecasting by hand analysis and communicating over HF radio, and nowadays, keeps watch over the current Volvo Round The World racing with vast amounts of information at his disposal. He also enjoys working with the New Zealand Americas Cup team.
