Spend two mornings with Kevin Monahan learning about the unique weather patterns of the west coast and how to make decisions based on weather forecasts. BC coastal weather patterns are confusing if you don’t understand the basic forces that shape the local weather in the Juan de Fuca Strait, Georgia Strait, Johnstone Strait and the North Coast. Once you understand the dynamics of the most common weather patterns that occur in the region, you can develop strategies that take advantage of them, thus having a more comfortable and less stressful cruise.
Open to all BCA members and non-members; for a detailed course outline and to register, go to the BCA website.
