Keeping a Weather Log & Your Daily Weather Briefing
Two classes in one!
Log Synopsis: Weather is described by many variables that affect a mariner’s daily life. Wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, air and water temperature, and clouds all interact with the sea surface to shape the sailor’s world. Keeping a weather log will efficiently capture important data, organize it, and help you answer the many weather related questions that come up in a day on the water.
Briefing Synopsis: We all check the weather before heading out for a day on the water. What do we need to know, where do we get the data, and how should it affect our sailing plans? The answers vary depending on whether it’s a day sail, weekend getaway, inside passage cruise, or ocean voyage. Learn how to do your own Daily Weather Briefing to ensure your safety, comfort, and enjoyment on your next outing.
