Your instructor: Chris Bedford
Like all of Marine Weather University's curriculum - this course is created and taught by legendary meteorologist, Chris Bedford. To say Chris is one of the best marine meteorologists in the world would not be an understatement. He just returned home from his 10th gig as an America's Cup team forecaster. He's worked for Olympic teams, Round the World Race events and campaigns, and is one of the most in-demand forecasters in the world of sailboat racing.
Chris is known for his straight-forward, honest, and practical approach to using weather knowledge as a competitive advantage. He obtained his Meteorology degree at the University of Michigan and is highly regarded in his field, having served as President of the National Council of Industrial Meteorologists and on many professional boards and committees including the American Meteorological Society,
Chris' partner in Marine Weather University - 2x America's Cup winner, Peter Isler helps out in the classroom.
