Understanding the Wind

Wind affects all boaters whether power or sail, on inland waters or offshore. A boat’s course and speed, lee shores, and safe anchorages are all determined by the wind. This introduction to the nature of wind, from global circulation to local patterns, will help you factor the weather into your boating plans. Learn the basic forces that cause the wind and how to read a weather chart to avoid strong winds and dangerous seas.
