Weekend workshop: weather

This weekend I spent at the SV03 at the wannsee to enjoy a two day weather workshop. When sailing you cannot know too much about weather. And there were a lot of new and very useful tipps – especially concerning 500hPa cards, the inner workings of low pressure systems etc.

Also there was an aditional part of the workshop focussing on how to receive weather info while underway (Navtex, SSB+Pactor, Inmarsat, etc.) This part was done by Norbert Kruse whose HAM-course I have the privilege of participating. I’ll do another post on that subject soon…
