Basic Weather and Forecasting

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
