Weather Forecasting Workshops

WEATHER WORKSHOPS

SSCA-sponsored Marine Weather Forecasting Workshops scheduled for October and November.

A two-day Marine Weather Forecasting Workshop will be held in:

Annapolis, MD on October 10-11,

and again in

Vero Beach, FL on November 15-16.

These Workshops are sponsored by Seven Seas Cruising Association (www.ssca.org) and are scheduled in conjunction with the annual SSCA Annapolis Gathering on October 8th (US Sailboat Show weekend), and the Annual Gam in Melbourne, FL on November 11-13.
The Workshop curriculum includes cause and effect of marine weather, charting symbols and terminology, the patterns of weather systems and interpreting surface and 500-mb charts. The goal of the Workshops is to enable self-reliant mariners to determine the safest routes for their voyages.
