The sources of weather information are expanding every day. Our special session with Marine Weather University founder Chris Bedford will help you select the best sources for your needs and teach you how to combine your own observations with forecast information to create a local forecast and plan your passages.
Cruising & Seamanship
Cruising is sailing… and so much more - navigation, night sailing, tides and currents, wind shifts, engine care, heads, dinghies… The list goes on and on.
In this session, we look at some of the challenges you might encounter on your cruising adventures. We'll cover topics including safety, knots, anchoring & docking, how to deal with squalls and storms, reefing, heaving-to, and as many other topics as we can squeeze into the allotted time!
Lastly, we will offer solutions and an approach to problem-solving that will help ensure a successful cruise. And then we encourage you to go cruising, don't wait, just go!
