Intro to Weather Forecasting
Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location. Human beings have attempted to predict the weather informally for millennia, and formally since the nineteenth century. Weather forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change.
Come on out Wednesday April 5th to learn from our very own Mike Turon on how to predict the weather for a successful sailing season. This event is open to members and the public. Free of charge.

Michael Turon. Michael grew up sailing Lasers and Hobie 16s on Huntington Lake, California at the age of 10. He upgraded to keel boats in his early thirties and owned a J/24 in San Francisco. Most of Michael’s sailing experience has been in the Bay Area, Lake Michigan (Chicago), New England, Long Island Sound, New York Harbor, and the Caribbean. Over the last four seasons, Michael has been an active One Design Racer and skipper in New York Harbor on J/105s, J/24s, Melges 24s and Colgate 26s. In 2015, Michael started offshore racing on Oakcliff’s Farr 40 program. Over the last three seasons, Michael has done several blue water deliveries in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; clocking over 3000nm of offshore experience. He enjoys skippering boats for charter vacations and has sailed in the BVIs on three occasions and New England on two occasions. Michael joined ONE15 Brooklyn Sail Club as an affiliate instructor during their inaugural 2015 season and is now a full instructor. When not sailing, Michael is an avid cook and foodie. He has been known to brew beer and travel all over the five boroughs in search of tasty bowls of ramen.
