Weather Symposium Videos

Ocean weather and sea state affects every aspect of our sport, from enjoyment and success to safety.  To help mariners develop a fundamental understanding of marine weather, sea state, and associated forecasts,  the CCA sponsored a one-day symposium in early 2018 at the MITAGS Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.
