BCA Vancouver Education
This two day course will provide helpful instruction on weather forecasting basics, coastal and offshore weather threats, passage planning resources and tools, offshore communication and how to access and use weather forecasting information when at sea.
To prepare for an offshore passage the prudent mariner plans the departure date for the most favorable weather conditions and then constantly monitors the developing weather situation to avoid threats or at least to avoid being surprised by their arrival. There is a great deal of forecasting information available in advance of departure. Most of this information is also available at sea, as well as email guidance from professional weather routing services. This allows those with limited weather expertise to make safe and comfortable ocean passages while learning as they go.
