Awesome course. If you're into sailing or meteorology there is nothing better. The amount of knowledge conveyed in this short course is immense, yet it's fun and captivating the whole time.

interesting course, sometimes the subtitles are not correct. But overall it is easy to follow. I had sometimes some difficulties to see the boats on the screen behind Marcel in the case studies.

Instructors did a great job introducing not only Meterology, but the basics of sailing equipment and technology for taking a boat around the world. Excellent!

I loved this course, as sailors with a 28ft blue water boat this has relevance as one day we would like to sail the world... until we do, this has added valuable meteorological and sailing knowledge.
It was difficult to see the screen sometimes and I found it useful to have google maps open too.
I also had to research the difference between high and low pressure and how they are formed as I didn't find this clear.
Not speaking spanish the subtitles were invaluable.
Many thanks, Clare

''No man will be a sailor who has scheme to get himself into a fence,for being in a ship is being in a fence, with the change of being overwhelmed.'' Said James Boswell in 1759. It's not good enough to become a sailorThis course telling us how to use winds when you on the sea surface.Thanks for the creators and all sailors teached us which kind of subjects the meteorology included.

This is my first MOOC and it lived up to my expectations. The material covered was well presented by great instructors. That some of the lectures were in Spanish (which I do not speak) was not a problem. I would recommend this course for anyone interested in

Really interesting course to have a really good idea about what system can be expected on a round the world regata. Also really good material for local effects and tactics.

Great course for any aspiring navigator or anyone who wants to learn about weather.
But, a majority of the course is in Spanish but, there are subtitles.

it would be useful to see the questions and selected answer for the incorrect ones in the quiz, as it is hard to remember what one needs to review.
The translation from spanish to english was often hard to follow, and the whiteboard drawings hard to see due to a weak contrast.
Overall though a great course, informative and well presented.

This course gave a good basic insight into meteorology and how it is used by Sailors. I particularly liked the case study section as it explained how the weather affects the Sailors tactical decisions. Using the case study to show meteorological effects on the BWR was very interesting.

Thank you for the valuable information. Very interesting, educating and yet fun to complete.
(-) The maps on the screen were difficult to watch, subtitles in English moderate.

The material was insightful and useful. Unfortunately it mainly covers the route for the Barcelona World Race and I was ultimately more interested in the weather patterns for the North Pacific. I think the overview of the weather (first sections) with the latter sections chockfull of examples were great and I better understand the weather systems in sailing terms on a broad base. Thanks!!

Somewhat deceptive that the course is advertised in English but given in Spanish.
