John Martin started cruising in 1994 with his family aboard Windflower a 13.5m cutter rigged sloop. Their first offshore trip in 1995 took them to Tonga and Fiji and since then have put over 80,00miles under Windflower’s keel. Adding to these miles is another 40,000 delivery miles as crew and skipper. In 2007 John and wife Lyn took over the reins of the IIsland Cruising Association and run rallies, seminars, training programs and cruising events around the SW Pacific and SE Asia, including the annual Doyle Pacific series rallies and the very popular biannual Doyle Pacific Circuit Rally. Dividing his time between the Bay of Islands and the South West Pacific John provides on the ground support for the cruising fleet, ensuring smooth sail service for all our customers.
