Weather Seminar Coming up in Larchmont, NY

Seminar To Address Sourcing Weather Data and How To Use It

In the wake of the 50th running of the Newport Bermuda Race, however, the Cruising Club of America (CCA) is taking steps to change that perception.  Armed with feedback from a survey of race participants – most of whom indicating they wished they had spent more time studying weather forecasting on their own – the CCA’s New York Station, along with The North American Station (NAS) of the Royal Scandinavian Yacht Club and Nyländska Jaktklubben, have joined together to present a weather seminar on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 10:00-4:00 at Larchmont Yacht Club in Larchmont, N.Y.
