Thanks for posting these Dan!

The course description of the first three look perfect for sea kayakers.

Thanks Dan !  Unfortunately I was not available last night for basic weather, but likely a repeat of other workshops.  I plan to register for some of the others and I passed this info on to my brother, who recently bought a fancy power boat.  Needless to say he does not drive a hybrid car !

I also found it really helpful, and it was great to be able to ask questions directly to the guys who create our local weather. I'll try to post the YouTube versions once they get the recordings online. Here's a screenshot I took so I could go back and learn more about how winds spiral into and out of low and high pressure areas.
