John Huth : Weather for Sea Kayakers 2/22/20

By Sue H., 48 minutes ago in General Message Board


John Huth once again has volunteered his time to present a workshop for NSPN members to understand weather and how these apply to sea kayaking. John is a long time NSPN member, and has a unique set of qualifications to present on this subject as he is both a physics professor/lecturer at Harvard University and an accomplished kayaker.  Additionally, he is the author "The Lost Art of Finding Our Way”,  a book exploring the strategies employed by early travelers through techniques of the modern era.

John's past weather courses have broadly covered weather topics such as: the approach of warm and cold fronts, how to read cloud formations, wind, the air circulation around high and low pressure systems, and how to evaluate weather signs. Members have come away from past workshops with a heightened understanding and appreciation of the physical forces that affect us while on the water.

The session will run from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.  This workshop will be held in the Meeting Room ( rear of the store) at REI, 279 Salem St, Reading, MA

Please sign up in calendar as The Meeting Room has limited capacity.
