This course will exposure  what a mariner needs to know & understand about recent changes in today’s marine weather charts & how best to apply them in important safety & strategic decision making in the environment one sails in, whether coastal cruising for a day inside the San Francisco Bay Area, coastal cruising along the U.S. west coast, or longer offshore blue water cruising north to Alaska, south & west to Hawaii, or further onto other shores (such as to the Galapagos, the Marquises, New Zealand & Australia), this is your opportunity to learn what it means to learn how to become self-reliant in marine weather and forecasting.
