Round the island weather briefing
For an inside track on the expected weather conditions for the JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race competitors can attend the free pre-race Raymarine Weather Briefing, hosted by Libby Greenhalgh, at 18.00 on Friday 29 June at the Island Sailing Club. Competitors can also sign up to receive forecasts via email and SMS here.
Top meteorologist, Libby Greenhalgh, who is Met Office trained and the Royal Yachting Association’s Olympic squad weather forecaster, will present the Raymarine Weather Briefing on the eve of the Round the Island Race.
As well as the live Weather Briefing, Libby will offer a series of online weather briefing videos providing advance weather and tactics advice in the days leading up to the race. These will provide a daily analysis of the weather patterns as they build, set against tidal predictions which competitors can use to start to build their tactical strategy ahead of the race.
The Raymarine Weather Briefing is designed to give competitors a detailed understanding of the weather patterns and tidal activity at key waypoints during the race.
