This is probably one of the most important aspects of running a boat. What is the wind doing? What is the current doing? Is it a time of day that a lot of boats will be charging down the fairway? etc., etc. Situational Analysis (SA) seems to be one of the hardest things to get through a new skipper's head but becomes a habit after several times concentrating on it.
Knowing what could happen or "Knowing what to expect"
is damn good advice!
