Weather Workshop (Virtual Training)

26/02/2021 @ 10:00 13:00 BST

At the core off all we do as sailors is one thing – weather. It’s is our engine, our bliss or our most frightening adversary.

Because of this, we need to know more about it than the average Joe. The subject of weather is vast and can be complicated, but let’s start with the basic ideas surrounding weather.

This session will cover:

  • weather sources, 
  • where our weather comes from, 
  • understanding the inshore waters and shipping forecast
  • an introduction to synoptic charts.
  • Understanding High and Low pressure systems 

We will also review the wide range of on-line weather sources and provide some recommendations on great weather apps for your smart phones/tablets.

A half day workshop- including hands-on in class weather experiments, No Previous experience required. Open to 16+

This session is delivered using our virtual platform – details on how to join the event will be sent in the booking confirmation.
