Annapolis School of Seamanship announces new class


The Annapolis School of Seamanship added a new Marine Weather Basics class to its lineup.

This introductory weather class is designed for everyone and covers the basics of local and regional weather, as well as provides a firm foundation for the coastal and offshore weather classes that will also be introduced this year.

Taught by offshore sailor and oceanographer, Frank Bohlen, this two-day class is a great way to better understand the weather and its impact.

The 12-hour course combines lecture and hands-on activities designed to familiarize boaters with the basic principles of marine weather and how to use information at hand to make safe boating decisions in local waters.

Students will work with case studies and exercises throughout the class.
