If you use a paid router, this course will explain why they are telling you what they are, and will enable you to properly adjust for unanticipated eventualities on the racecourse. I wish I'd taken it earlier!

I learnt so much in this course! Chelsea is an excellent teacher and the material is clear, concise and well structured. The course assumes zero marine weather knowledge, so you get a very comprehensive introduction to the basics, and learn how to apply them to coastal racing strategy. It was empowering to gain an understanding of how or why certain patterns develop, instead of having to accept it as just “local knowledge”. Chelsea uses real life weather scenarios when she talks us through different racing strategies, which is interesting and helpful. She also shared tons of weather resources, and gave us the tools to streamline and decipher the data that we are seeing, making the process of translating that info into a strategy a little less overwhelming. All in all, a great experience! :)
