This is a 3 to 4 day course, depending on wind and conditions, aimed to deliver a safe, informed, confident and competent day sailor/skipper who can confidently command a sailboat up to 10 meters (32.8 feet) and crew during daylight hours in fair conditions in inland waters (bay or lake sailing) or coastal waters up to 5 miles offshore. As you advance and become more proficient as crew or skipper you take on bigger challenges that require proper training to ensure the safety of your family and friends. The bigger the boat or length of adventure the more training you require. Most of us prefer to spend our time on the water and not in a classroom. To facilitate this, IYT has a series of E-learning courses available for the theoretical part of sail and powerboat training.

The RYA break the controls used to sail a dinghy effectively into five basic headings. While you are sailing you should be continuously checking that all five are correctly adjusted for your current sailing direction relative to that of the wind. Balance – side to side balance; Boat Trim – fore and aft boat pitch; Sail Setting – setting of sails relative to the wind; Centreboard – the position of the centreboard; Course made good – choosing the most appropriate course

Full-Auto Illuminator: Automatically deactivates the Auto EL backlight function when surrounding light is sufficient, and activates it under dim light or dark conditions. Low-temperature resistant (-10 °C): Even temperatures as low as -10 °C have no effect on this watch. Solar Power: A solar cell provides power for operation. Duplex LCD: Giving you a constant overview: Elements on the display are distinguished from one another using colour. This is achieved using different coloured layers placed on top of one another, allowing information to be displayed more clearly. Digital-compass: A built-in direction sensor detecs the magnetic north. 10,000 m Altimeter: A pressure sensor detects changes in the air pressure and converts the result into an altitude up to 10,000 m. Height Gain: The height gain sums all the meters you have climbed in a session, so that you can see at a glance the total ascent on a tour. Sunrise/sunset display: After entering the geographical location, sunrise and sunset times can be displayed for any given date. Barometer (260 / 1.100 hPa): A special sensor measures the air pressure (measuring range: 260 / 1100 hPa) and presents this on the display in the form of a symbol. This enables early detection of weather trends.

Red Sea Sails was founded by a group of friends who share the vision of building a sailing environment in the stunning Red Sea. A long time ago, sailboats shaped the history of the Red Sea. Today, replaced by motor vessels, sailboats are almost non-existent. Red Sea Sails recognizes the potentials of the ideal sailing conditions and the ecological benefits sailing will have on the Red Sea. Red Sea Sails finds the Red Sea constant wind, all year-round temperate weather, rich marine life, magical desert coastline and nearby Egypt’s world-class archeological sites allow for an unforgettable sailing experience. It is a privilege to sail in the Red Sea.

I am an addicted kiter, helicopter and jet pilot who seeks the wind, waves, METARs and powder snow almost constantly. Since programming is my passion, I coded Windyty.com in 2014 as my pet project. The original version was highly inspired by the products from the Swiss company Meteoblue and other project called "Earth", that displayed animated wind particles on the globe. I have completely rewrote open source codes of Earth and also made an agreement with Meteoblue to use some of their products that time. And thus Windyty was born (renamed to Windy a few years later). My goal is to keep Windy small and fast to be accessible in the most remote locations.

By reporting your own positions, MarineTraffic will be able to display your vessel on the Live Map. Visibility: Real-time vessel positions displayed on the MarineTraffic Live Map are extremely useful to a wide spectrum of users closely-related to the shipping industry one way or the other. To name a few, ship owners, agents, pilots, tug operators, port authorities, crews' families and friends, passengers, cargo handlers or recipients, brokers, leisure boaters, sailing racers, ship chandlers, bunkering companies, yacht charterers or brokers may have a reason to monitor the positions of your vessel. The list of interested parties is unlimited while the numbers speak for themselves; the visibility of the MarineTraffic website is such that the number of visitors per day well exceeds the half a million mark! Safety: Although MarineTraffic is not intended to be used as a safety tool, there are many cases where making your position widely known could enhance your safety at sea. Making your position known to the public may be complementary to the official means of distress reporting (such as EPIRB or DSC radio) and may help in Search & Rescue (SAR) procedures where the position of the vessel cannot be acquired by other means. Historical data: MarineTraffic stores historical data in its database. Historical data regarding the past movements of your vessel could be accessed for many reasons; such as just for fun or recollection, for statistical reasons, for analyzing tracks in comparison to weather conditions, for accident investigation etc. Consider it as an online log of yours!

John Constable was een Engels landschapschilder en aquarellist van het romantisch realisme. De techniek van zijn meeste werken was olie op doek. Soms gebruikte hij olie op papier of schilderde hij een aquarel.

In Taiwan is een bestuurder er met de schrik afgekomen toen een grote rotsblok plots op de weg viel door een aardverschuiving. Het incident werd gefilmd door een dashboardcamera van een ander voertuig. Niemand in de auto raakte gewond.

The DFW Metroplex is located in the part of Texas known as "Tornado Alley." Severe weather can occur anytime but the spring and summer months are when thunderstorms can fire up in a heartbeat. The best advice is to conduct tornado drills at home just like the schools do routinely. Be prepared. Be safe. I grew up in the Wichita Falls area and witnessed the devastation from one of the worst tornadoes in Texas. It was a mile and a half wide and it stayed on the ground for miles and miles. This killer tornado struck back in 1979, and it's a wonder more people weren't injured or killed. Technology today can pinpoint suspicious cloud rotation and predict what parts of town need to take immediate shelter.

weatherjack aims to bring together many web sources of weather information on interest to glider pilots.
Daily forecasts from weatherjack are no longer provided but the RASP/Blipmaps computer programs are being continuously refined and are very good indeed..
Several human forecasters are now giving excellent gliding forecasts.
