Changing weather is one of the things most boaters and their crews fear most. Usually it is not deadly, but it can be downright scary when a pleasant day of boating turns ugly. Knowing the basics can help you interpret the weather, plan a trip, and make a good decision about traveling on your vessel. This course will take you through the basics of how to understand the information available and how to combine it with tide and current information to determine the sea conditions. The class will provide you with many resources and examples of how we’ve planned and enjoyed our time on the water. They say timing is everything, and a few hours difference with the change of current can make all difference in the world. We will use a checklist approach where you can create your own system to create an understanding of the weather that fits your vessel and crew.
