Monaco Yacht Club is launching the Monaco Weather Lab on November 14, a new training programme devoted to marine weather, climatology and safety at sea. Set up within La Belle Classe Academy, the training centre of Monaco Yacht Club, and in cooperation with Navimeteo – a company that provides maritime weather information services – the project is dedicated to all maritime professionals, the Yacht Club said/

Nowadays, it is easy to look at the weather forecast thanks to the technologies at our reach, but are we able to interpret these data correctly? The Monaco Weather Lab’s primary objective, through theoretical and practical training, is to enable all maritime professionals and boaters to know how to interpret the weather beyond technologies, to understand and safely manage the hazards of weather at sea and on the coast. In the long term, the project wants to go further, allowing Monaco to become a centre where professionals in the field will receive information and advice on the safest and most comfortable routes to follow with valuable details at the local level.

The Monaco Ports are already a reference for yachts, cruise ships, sailboats and for the entire maritime industry. This unique project is part of the Principality’s ambition to position itself as a pole of excellence in Yachting.
