Two Day Marine Meteorology Weather Course (Level 1) by Lee Chesneau

Lee Chesneau, Senior Marine Meteorologist, formerly with NOAA/NWS's Ocean
Prediction Center, and now owner of Lee Chesneau's Marine Weather, will provide a
challenging follow up to his hour seminars with a two day course for a mariner's self
reliance in understanding High Frequency (HF) Single Side Band (SSB) Radio-facsimile
weather charts (also available on the Internet) and predicting marine weather.

His 39 years of forecasting marine weather and strategic route planning on a global,
synoptic, and local scale for mariners has been now successfully transferred to the
classroom where he takes you step by step toward understanding both the ocean and
atmospheric environment that you boat in. As a former mariner, Lee knows that this is
necessary and important for not only in determining your own weather forecasts, but
making strategic decisions whether operating with the coastal waters, offshore, or in
trans-ocean crossings.

Two Day Course Includes:

      Concepts of atmospheric behavior and its cause & effects of marine weather
      Basics of cloud formations and related visibility concerns
      Basics of surface weather and patterns
      Interpretation of OPC and TPC surface pressure charts
      OPC & TPC wind & wave chart interpretation
      Introduction to Tropical Cyclone 1-2-3 Rule for avoidance
      Course Certificate

Course Fee: $325.00 (workbook additional $24.95 includes application exercises & note
taking guide of the material presented.)
Dates: 1/29–1/30
Location: Navy Pier Room 308
Time: 8am–4pm Saturday and 8am to 3:30pm Sunday

FREE SAILING SEMINARS
The Strictly Sail Seminar Series is presented by Blue Water Sailing offers nearly 200 free
seminars at the Strictly Sail Chicago Boat Show. The seminars, which span the four -day
show, are taught by authors, technical experts and well-seasoned sailors and cover a
wide range of topics. Sailors will find topics that expand their knowledge on general
boating knowledge, cruising, living aboard, circumnavigation, exploring the Great Lakes,
learning how to get started—the list goes on.

The final schedule can be found on the show web site, http://www.strictlysailchicago.com,
but here are some of the highlighted seminars:
The 10 Things They Never Tell you about the Cruising Life: Friday, 1:00, Room 307
Join George Day, publisher for Blue Water Sailing and Cruising Compass, as he opens
doors to the real cruising life, what it entails, what are the rewards and what are the
hardships. It's not all rum drinks with pink umbrellas in them out there. Nor is it all
shipwrecks and pirates. In the early 1990s, he and his wife Rosa took their two sons on a
five year circumnavigation west-about aboard their 43-foot ketch Clover. George has
cruised and raced more than 100,000 miles offshore. He is the author of three best-selling
books: Out There (with Herb McCormick), Safety at Sea and The Well Managed Sail
Boat.

Ocean Voyaging Preparation: Friday, 11:45-Room 325
John & Amanda Neal will help you prepare your boat and yourself for cruising, whether to
the Caribbean, the Med or the South Pacific. Topics covered include: selecting the best
possible boat within your budget, refitting/outfitting for offshore, engine and electrical
systems, navigation, cost of cruising, insurance, seamanship and communication options.
Based on John & Amanda Neal’s combined 544,000 miles and 69 years experience. A

present Secrets of Successful Cruising , South Pacific Cruising from Panama to New
Zealand to New Zealand and Mastering Storm Avoidance and Survival Tactics

engines, marine diesel engine school teacher and is currently employed by Larsen

Learn how to navigate safely after dark and stand a night watch at sea. Nancy Early

overboard. Knowledge can turn feelings of uncertainty into profound appreciation for the
wonders of the night sea. Nancy Erley led two voyages from Seattle around the world
aboard her Orca 38 sailboat, Tethys. "As the skipper of an all-woman crew, Nancy
fashioned a circumnavigation that should go down in the record books as one of the
soundest, most seamanlike journeys in the modern cruising era. Like all competent
voyages, Tethys circumnavigation was notable for its lack of disasters." George Day,
publisher Blue Water Sailing magazine. Founder of Tethys Offshore, Nancy teaches the
skills to take a small boat across an ocean, from competent crew to ocean skipper.

Cruising the Bahamas: Thursday, 2:15-Room 303; Saturday, 1:00-Room 307

presentation will have you jumping into the clear water before you know it. Pam Wall
works at the West Marine store in Fort Lauderdale. After the circumnavigation with her
family, she helps cruisers around the world get the products they need. Pam offers advice
and friendship as well as supplies for the yachtsmen and women out on their boats.
