Heavy Weather Sailing.
Bad weather at sea can generate fear and uncertainty, sap morale and lead to poor decision making. But it doesn’t need to. This course will help to prepare you to have a well thought-out strategy to see the storm not as an ordeal demanding superhuman strength, skill and endurance, but just as a different type of weather.
Accurate forecasts are readily available these days so there’s less likelihood of finding yourself out of reach of land with bad weather closing in, but still it happens. Perhaps it’s the temptation to sail on a marginal forecast to make sure you’re home for work on Monday.
This course will teach you about being prepared, and controlling risk. It will start you thinking about making preparations to maximize things you can control and minimize the things you can’t control.
The instructor for this class is David Kunselman, our Commodore.
