Understanding Marine Weather

This 3-hour seminar will introduce basic weather concepts, discuss the use of various weather forecasts and predictive tools available to mariners, and introduce the art of weather observation, strategy and tactics while on the water. 

We will gain a basic understanding of air masses, temperature and pressure gradients, wind, clouds and storms. This knowledge will be applied to understanding and using weather charts, chart symbols, and electronic data available by smartphone, VHF radio and weatherfax. 

Visual weather observations from our decks is discussed, as well as appropriate actions to promote the safety of our vessels and crew.
