WXR302 Introduction to Tropical Cyclones and the 1-2-3 Rule

Seven Seas U invites you to attend a webinar to enhance your cruising knowledge.

By Daria Blackwell - 19/02/2018

Invitation to Web seminar: WXR302-1a: Introduction to Tropical Cyclones

Presenter: Lee Chesnau

Date and Time:
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 8:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00)

Webinar Program Summary
The mariner's most feared weather system is a tropical cyclone, also know as hurricanes and typhoons. With winds over 64kts and confused seas of 60ft or more, the only survival strategy for a small vessel is to avoid them completely. This two-part webinar program provides you the strategic planning and tactical procedures to stay out of harms way.

In the first part, Lee discusses the conditions required for tropical cyclones to form and to sustain and its life cycle from a tropical disturbance to a tropical depression, on to a tropical storm and finally a tropical cyclone.

In the second part, Lee discusses the 1-2-3 rule for hurricane avoidance at sea, and how to position your boat for maximum safety whether at sea or in a marina or anchorage.

Registering for this program allows you to attend all 4 sessions on tropical cyclones at a bundled price. The Sunday sessions are a repeat of the Tuesday sessions, so you can join both or either.

The weather series provides a near classroom environment, so be prepared to participate with question and answer sessions and exercises.
