John Harries and Phyllis Nickel

The Geoff Pack Memorial Award - 2009

John Harries and Phyllis Nickel (OCC Members) have written extensively about their travels with their 56ft cutter Morgan’s Cloud through their e-book Norwegian Cruising Guide and on their website, Attainable Adventure Cruising []. On reading through their work it is evident that they are highly experienced offshore cruisers, and have shared the experiences gained in over 100,000 miles of sailing in high latitudes. Their award was received on their behalf by Doug and Dale Bruce, who added their own praise to the good work of John and Phyllis and read out their grateful acceptance of this prestigious OCC award.
