Commodore Scott Poulter & Past Commodore Val Nichols present "Coastal Weather & Passage Planning - Cruising For Pleasure". The forum will run for 1.5 to 2 two hours and will include several detailed presentations, questions and answers and group activities.

Topics will include: timing, communications, weather, weather models, weather forecasts, weather observations, navigation, sea state, currents, tides, secure locations, night sailing, planning to arrive and contingency plans.

If you are planning or dreaming of living aboard and cruising Australia‘s magnificent coastline then this is a fantastic opportunity to develop your knowledge base. Val has recently returned from 12 months cruising north to Great Keppel Island and return, much of the time single handed. Scott has completed more than 50,000nm cruising Australia‘s coastline from Port Lincoln in SA to Lizard Island in far North Queensland and everywhere in between.

In an unlikely series of events, Nick Jaffe turned to the sea at age 26. Departing England in a 26ft boat, he would sail home to Australia, singlehanded over four years. This formative adventure would become the first of several, including a second Pacific crossing, a voyage from Palau to Darwin, the Australian east coast, across Bass Strait in an 86 year old open boat, and most recently, nonstop across the Bight.
