After two years of development and beta testing, PassageWeather.com
is now officially online and “ready for prime time”. PassageWeather.com is a new weather
website “for sailors and adventurers”, consisting of 7-day sailing forecasts for all the oceans and seas of the world, updated 4 times a day.
We’ve taken all the vital weather
information that sailors want, including wind
speed and direction, surface pressure, wave height and direction, sea surface temperature, etc, and packaged it all into a very intuitive, fast, and easy-to-use format.
And all this information is available (for free) for everywhere you would possibly be sailing, with the same “look and feel” for all regions. These regions range from full ocean overviews (North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Mediterranean
Sea, etc.) down to more detailed sub-regions (South Florida
, Windward Islands
, etc.). There are also special forecasts for the major ocean races, such as the Newport Bermuda Race
, Fastnet Race
, Transpac, Sydney
We've recently added a very detailed 5-day Gulf Stream forecast
, something that will prove invaluable to navigators preparing for this spring’s Newport Bermuda
I know that there are many good weather sites on the Internet
, but they mostly deal with one particular part of the world. PassageWeather.com covers everywhere, so there’s no need to search through dozens of weather sites to get you where you’re going.
