Expedition – you've got the basics, what’s next?
In this course we consolidate your learning from the Basics class, then move on to using wave and current grib files and modifying these to gain more insight into the routing options. We also cover georeferencing current and weather images and overlaying gribs onto these. This course focuses on the mechanics of doing these things. It is the ORCV Navigation Masterclass that focuses on how to interpret these data. We are running this course because, until you understand and can competently and consistently repeat the steps to produce the required output, you will not be able to take full advantage of what the MasterClass has to offer.
So, if georeferencing IMOS charts, overlaying weather gribs onto synoptic charts or using wave polars in your weather routing is new for you, then you need to do this course. In this course you will learn:
- How to work with different weather options to create weather routes
- Working with wave polars & wave gribs
- Analysing winds, current & MSLP
- Working with georeferencing weather images and pre-set images
Pre-requisites include A good degree of competency in Expedition. You should be able to create a safe route, set boat polars and sail charts. If you do not have this knowledge or are unsure, please book into the first course, "Expedition, let's get started"
