Weather Cast Talk with Jim Bacon

WHETHER OR NOT YOU SAIL
DO YOU TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER EVERY DAY?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO ACCURATELY FORECAST TOMORROW’S WEATHER?
THEN COME ALONG TO JIM BACON’S TALK ON SATURDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 2017 AT 19.45 

Supper available from 18:00, £17 per person. Please  pre order – Main Course Fish & Chips or Steak Pie, Desserts Vanilla Panna Cotta with Berry Compote, Apple & Blackberry Crumble. Please contact the Club Office to order and book your place.

Jim has been a Meteorologist since 1968 and is still thoroughly fascinated by all things weather. He was one of the founding directors of Weatherquest in 2001.

His career started in East Anglia on RAF stations in 1968 and then moved to Bracknell as a programmer on the Met Office supercomputer for a few years. After a return to aviation forecasting including a spell at Stansted Airport, he then went on to gain a degree in Meteorology at Reading University before being posted to London Weather Centre, where he became a senior forecaster. This work involved forecasting for the offshore industry and media forecasting for national radio and television in the days of the magnetic (some not so) symbols.

In 1985 Jim’s family life started with twins, which made twelve hour shift-working in Central London very challenging, and the next year he moved back to East Anglia to become a member of the Anglia Television weather team. This lasted until 1997 when Jim rejoined the Met Office for a period before setting up Weatherquest when the local Norwich Weather Centre was closed down. Jim has been a guest speaker on the subject of the ‘Weather Business’ as well as talks on radio propagation to amateur radio clubs (he is a keen radio amateur and still uses Morse code, but not so much in weather forecasts!).

Jim plans to talk about the current availability of weather data for sailors and how to interpret longer-range forecasts when route planning. He will also introduce a radar service which can be subscribed to and shows real time rain/lightning and wind data from official observing stations.

Jim will (very generously) not charge for coming along, so your Social Committee (who had to book him 18 months in advance) have agreed that Jim will take a collection in aid of EAST ANGLIA’S CHILDREN’S HOSPICE.

We look forward to welcoming you all
