For those entering or considering the Bermuda Ocean Race, organizers are hosting a seminar titled “Using Weather Wisely” from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Nov. 19 at Bacon Sails & Marine Supplies, 116 Legion Avenue, Annapolis, Md.

The seminar will focus on weather patterns for Chesapeake Bay, Gulf Stream and the open ocean using publically available information. The presentation will include gathering information before the start of the race and collecting and using data while underway. The panelists are weather professionals who are also experienced ocean sailors and racers. “They will go beyond textbook theories to bring a ‘real world perspective’ to the seminar,” race chairwoman Mary Ann De Graw said.

This featured seminar, the third in the series, is free and open to the public. Contact Kristy Goode at kristy@sailingclasses.com or 410-570-9710 for seminar details.
