TOP REVIEWS FROM STRATEGIES FOR WINNING. METEOROLOGY IN A ROUND THE WORLD REGATTA
Awesome course. If you're into sailing or meteorology there is nothing better. The amount of knowledge conveyed in this short course is immense, yet it's fun and captivating the whole time.
As a deck cadet learning meteorology this really helped show the practical weather considerations as well as giving a nice picture of the global circulation system.
Instructors did a great job introducing not only Meterology, but the basics of sailing equipment and technology for taking a boat around the world. Excellent!
Great course for any aspiring navigator or anyone who wants to learn about weather. But, a majority of the course is in Spanish but, there are subtitles.
