Are the winds too strong?  What is a small craft advisory?  The safety and comfort of those who venture out on the water have always been weather dependent.  This seminar, a must for boaters who have never taken a weather course, will help you answer these questions and gain an understanding of the forces acting on your boat.  Understand the forecast and know what to expect, whether you're in a kayak, trawler, sailboat, or schooner.  This seminar presents a complex subject in a way that is both understandable and useful.

Cruise confidently in coastal waters, secure in your knowledge of tidal conditions.  Even if you are an inland boater, you may travel to an area where knowing about tides and tidal currents is important.  Discover what causes the tides to rise and fall and what causes the currents to flow. Learn where to find sources of information about tides and tidal currents, simple ways to predict height of tide and speed of current flow and how to use both print and electronic tide tables.  Learn about how tides and currents affect your boat’s performance from experienced coastal boaters.
