THE Weather coach


"Don't confuse your weather app with a meteorology degree and 35 years of winning experience."

You can easily access a wealth of weather information online either freely or by subscription. Getting a reasonably accurate multi-day weather forecast - good enough to know whether you'll need a jacket today or shovel the driveway tomorrow - is not difficult.


But when it comes to navigating a winning a race, safely delivering a yacht or having a comfortable and enjoyable cruise, knowing what information is useful, when to use it and how to apply to your specific activity is the difference between success and failure. An expert weather coach can help you navigate and filter the wealth of information and tools available, educate you on how to apply that information and those tools, and give you confidence that you are prepared to take on the competition.

Chris Bedford is respected world-wide for the 30+ years of experience and expertise in marine and coastal meteorology he provides to the world's most accomplished and successful sailors. He is sought out for his straight-forward, honest, and practical approach to using weather knowledge as a competitive advantage.
