À propos du cours

In this course you can learn about the mechanics of global weather, the foundations of ocean meteorology, predictive modeling and how sailors receive data via satellite and use high-performance navigation software. This course looks at oceanic meteorology and climatology through the lens of the sport of sailing. You will gain a basic knowledge of meteorology needed by sailors to take part in a regatta such as the Barcelona World Race, the only double-handed, round the world regatta with no stops. You will learn about the strategies employed during a round the world regatta and how these are put to use on board the latest ocean racing yachts....

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!!

Video at times difficult to see for lack of contrast. Audio for modules 6.1 cut out at 40sec.

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

I was hoping for interesting info about world weather. But the meteorological stuff is that concerning sections of the round-the-world yacht race route. Seems to be a class on what you would need to know to win this race safely. Some of the boating info is interesting. Also, it's largely in Spanish. So, if you are English speaking and like subtitles, then you are good to go.

Unfortunately the videos are in Spanish; Although the description mentions English subtitle I was not able to find these.

This really reduces the value for anyone not speaking Spanish.
