Description

In this course we will discuss all the key elements of weather routing, in order to learn how to create and analyze a routing strategy through modern navigation instruments:Cartography (raster and vector charts), Polar curves and sail charts (both on graphic and on tables), Meteorological models (what are the main models, the difference between websites and the use of GRIB files) and the theory behind the process of creating a comprehensive routing strategy. An introductory course where students can learn everything they need to know to start planning their offshore sailing (regattas or deliveries) more accurately. We want to transmit a method more then just a series of concepts.

Everything done using diagrams, examples and quiz to make it 100% clear!
