Two-Day Advanced Marine Weather Course (Annapolis, Feb 28-Mar 1)

ASCLogoThis two day advanced course builds upon the knowledge students gained from attending the Basic Marine Weather courses on Jan 10-11 or Feb 21-22, or any other Basic Marine Weather courses by Lee Chesneau taken in the past year (required). Topics covered in this course include discussion of upper air concepts as an introduction to the holy grail of weather forecasting and routing: “500 Mb” upper air charts, which includes upper level troughs & ridges, flow patterns, and the important vessel weather forecasting & routing applications and exercises. The other topics covered in the course will be Tropical Cyclone Basics and the 1-2-3 Rule for avoidance along with a practical reinforcement avoidance exercise. The course will end with a full weather map discussion leading up to a virtual voyage long distance route planning and underway exercise, which will utilize all the Surface Pressure, Sea State, and Upper Air Analyses and Forecast Charts covered in both of the Basic and just completed Advanced Marine Weather courses

Though there is a choice of taking only the first day of this two-day course, it is recommended that both days be taken to receive the application knowledge needed to have a full understanding of marine weather forecasting, giving you the confidence of being self reliant in your own weather forecasting as well as keeping your crew & vessel out of harm’s way.

After completing both Basic and Advanced Marine Weather courses, students can considered themselves armed with the knowledge and cultural skill needed to be more self-reliant in their own weather forecasting skills. Course time is 8 to 4 with Q&A time after!

Price: $250 for both days, or $125.00 for one (for those who wish to take the first day only, or for those who took the first day last winter and wish to attend just the second day this year – completing day 1 is required to attend day 2).
