Marine Weather
Grassroots Sailing School’s philosophy is to give our students all the tools we feel are necessary to develop prudent sailors. Our Basic Cruising Std Modular Theory program has been designed to do that. One of the modules is Part One of Marine Weather.

Three key objective of our basic weather course that has been developed by our resident Environment Canada meteorologist are:
• Know where to get weather information and understand features of Marine Weather Website

• Become aware of key weather-related hazards, how to predict or recognize them and what to do

• Obtain introductory knowledge of weather maps, clouds, radar, satellite and computer model maps
While the course instructor will be providing an overview of the weather on a global scale primarily the course looks at weather as it affects a basic sailor in their local waters.
While we recommend a new sailor takes all of the 5 modules that comprise Basic Cruising Std Modular Theory the modular system is designed to allow students to sign up for single modules.
For those students wishing to move forward to the Intermediate level is a Marine Weather Part Two which is one of the modules of the Intermediate Cruising Std Modular Theory

Key objectives of the 2nd weather module will be to:
• Recognize clouds and the associated weather

• Understand the effects of frontal system as they impact the cruising sailor

• Obtain more indepth knowledge of weather maps, clouds, radar, satellite and computer model maps especially as it apples to popular cruising areas.
