ASA’s Weather Endorsement teaches the practical application of both atmospheric science and oceanography in relation to sailing. You will gain a fundamental understanding of weather, its interaction with the sea, as well as squalls, fronts, storms, atmospheric pressure, global wind patterns and how they influence the planning and execution of your sail, locally and globally. Anyone who ventures onto the water can benefit from this course – dinghy to tall-ship sailors, racers or cruisers, offshore or lake-bound sailors will all find merit in this class. Class Fee: Members $245.00 / Public $275.00 Taught by ISC Member David Wilkinson.
Class fee: $250 members / $300 public. Fee includes textbook / workbook. For more information contact: email@example.com
Instructed by: ALAN SOMERVELL / DAVID WILKINSON: Three Part Seminar: Part 1 will describe strong wind systems you will find at home in the Pacific Northwest. Learn how to read a weather chart and get the data you need to prepare both your boat and crew for heavy winds. Part 2 will showcase the practicalities of sailing in stronger winds and higher waves so that you can make your sail safer and more enjoyable for your crew. Part 3 will offer students an opportunity to sign up to sail with Alan to experience these conditions throughout the winter as our winter storms develop. Class Fee: Members $50.00 / Public $75.00
