Are the winds too strong? What is a small craft advisory? The safety and comfort of those who venture out on the water have always been weather dependent. This seminar, offered by America's Boating Club, is a must for boaters who have never taken a weather course. It helps answer these questions and form an understanding of the forecast to know what to expect, whether in a kayak, trawler, sailboat, or schooner.
Basic Weather and Forecasting covers:
- What causes weather
- How weather systems move
- Why winds blow
- What clouds tell us
- How storms and fronts create foul weather
- Why fog forms
- Where to get the best professional forecasts
- How to refine them using your own observations
