“A veering wind will clear the sky; A backing wind says storms are nigh.”
All boaters have heard this mariners’ proverb or
similar ones. They have a salty flavor that takes us back to the era of
sailing ships. In this seminar students will learn the meteorological
basis for them.
The safety and comfort of those who venture
out-on-the-water have always been weather dependent. This seminar is a
must for boaters who have never taken a weather course. The complex
subject of weather is presented in a way that is both understandable
and useful. Topics include:
Air Masses and Fronts;
Clouds and Thunderstorms;
Each seminar participant receives a waterproof McGraw Hill Captain’s QuickGuide – Onboard Weather Forecasting
– designed for onboard and field use. Each participant also receives a
full color Student Guide with slide images and complete notes written
especially for the seminar.
