Great Speakers to be Present at the Show

 

In order to support Quebec Navigators, Explorers and Sailors, the Quebec Marine Association proudly presents this great programming. 

 
ETIENNE GREGOIRE - ENVIRONmENT CANADA

Meteorology and boating go hand in hand.  A pleasure boater well informed of weather conditions and forecasts on the water is much better informed to make safety and security decisions.  A contributing factor for a large majority of boating accidents is the weather.  Waves and strong winds are often cited as factors.

Marine forecasts become even more useful when pleasure boaters acquire basic meteorological knowledge.  This allows them to apply this knowledge on the water using all the marine information available.
