Workshop leader: Andrew Eccleston

In this workshop we will consider weather in the context of planning a passage from Felixstowe to Ijmuden:

  • Considering the importance of obtaining weather information before making an offshore passage
  • Understanding how the weather forecast is made helps us to make better use of the information available
  • Looking at traditional and advanced sources of weather information
  • Obtaining weather information while on passage
  • Deciding if it’s OK to leave port
