4 Wind and Boating Boating Skills And Seamanship Copyright 2014 - Coast Guard Auxiliary Association, Inc. 14th ed. 5 Winds and Boats Boating Skills And Seamanship What are the factors affecting winds? High and low pressure systems Fronts the intersections of air masses Warm usually clouds & rain, but little wind Cold often mean dramatic wind shifts,

strong gusts, storms This is where most severe weather occurs Heat buildup of heat over the earth causes air to rise, water condenses as rain Land breeze/sea breeze caused by heat differential between land & sea Copyright 2014 - Coast Guard Auxiliary Association, Inc. 14th ed. 6 Winds and Waves Boating Skills And Seamanship What are factors that determine characteristics of waves?

Wind strength Fetch - distance over water that wind travels Deep water - larger, longer waves Shallow water - short, steep waves Current - wind against current means short, steep waves Copyright 2014 - Coast Guard Auxiliary Association, Inc. 14th ed.
