The VI and Vancouver Chapter Education Watchkeepers, Brent Alley and Kit Griffin, are delighted to announce this online Zoom course which is open to all BCA members and non-members!
Spend two mornings online with instructor-extraordinaire, Kevin Monahan, learning just how much you don’t know about tides and currents! This popular seminar is must-do prep for your summer cruising so you can confidently tackle the tides and currents of our coastal waters.
Through this course you will realize that there is a lot more to learn about tides and currents than just reading the basic information in your tide table book or smart phone. You will find out the most reliable sources of information and why they are the best. Learn about tide and current effects from the North Coast to the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Each two hour presentation will be followed by ½ hour of questions. There is no need to subscribe to Zoom, just register for Tides and Currents and we’ll send a link to you a couple of days before the course.
