Weather and offshore comms webinars
Expert navigator Bill Biewenga (above - ex-Drum, The Card, Charles Jourdain, etc etc) and Lou Roberts will be hosting some 'webinars' aimed at helping sailors with their offshore yachting.
The 'Offshore Communications webinars' on 10 and 13 March aim to help sailors find out about the newest technologies as well as the intricacies behind the established forms of offshore communications.
A three hour 'Weather Interpretation' webinar, with the help of experts from Commanders' Weather and NOAA's Ocean Prediction Center, will be devoted to helping sailors understand how to make sense of the weather signs around them. Whether it's weather maps, satellite images, radar or clouds overhead, learn what the info means and how to take advantage of that information for your own safety and sailing enjoyment. These webinars will take place on 17 and 20 March.
