Good hurricane info in Fort Lauderdale

Hi Sailnet--I wanted to pass this along to everyone in South Florida. Free seminars, free wine and beer, free food... Come early and plan on spending the whole afternoon. The first seminar starts at 1, and you'll want to get a good seat!

On June 3, Bluewater Books & Charts in downtown Fort Lauderdale is dedicating an entire day to hurricane preparation and safety. Free seminars will run all afternoon, and special discounts will be offered on hurricane tracking charts, weather instruments and, of course, books on weather and hurricane preparation. Perhaps the most valuable part of this experience will be the opportunity for South Florida boaters to discuss, one-on-one, storm stories and strategies with other local boaters and experts on storm prediction and preparation.

Bluewater will end the day with a bang, hosting a free reception complete with appetizers, wine and beer. The reception will coincide with a panel featuring a question and answer session with the speakers.


1:00 PM to 2:00 PM: Bob Adriance on Learning From Boat US's Case Files
Bob Adriance, author of Seaworthy and editor of BoatUS's Seaworthy magazine, has spent the past 20 years reviewing and writing accident reports for BoatUS's Marine Insurance Division. He will go over some of the worst case scenarios during past hurricane seasons, and tell you how to avoid becoming another insurance company's case file.

2:30 PM to 3:30 PM: Captain Marti Brown on Preparing for the Worst
Captain Marti Brown, author of the Idi-Yachts books, tells you how to prepare your boat for a hurricane and shares fantastic and frightening storm footage from the Bahamas and the Florida Keys.

4:00 PM to 5:00 PM: Chris Parker on Forecasting and Tracking Tropical Systems
Weather Expert Chris Parker, author of Coastal and Offshore Weather: SE US and the Bahamas, tells you how to predict and track tropical cyclones, from formation to landfall.

5:00 PM to 7:00 PM: Reception with speaker Q&A at 5:30.
