Stan Honey, Navigator ABN AMRO ONE

sh2“Lee Chesneau’s five day course on Advanced Meteorology was a substantial help to me in my preparations to navigate ABN AMRO in the Volvo Ocean Race. A key skill in navigating a Volvo race is the ability to recognize changes in the structure of the weather as early as possible while there is still time to position the boat to take advantage of the upcoming change. There is nobody better to learn that technique from that one of the guys whose name we’ve all seen on thousands of OPC weather maps. Lee is particularly skilled at the interpretation of the upper level (500mb) weather and the long term affects that the upper level structure will have on the surface weather.”
