Exclamation A new Weather site for sailors

I just wanted to let you know about a new Weather site for sailors that I've developed, and I thought it could be of use to the users of this forum... It's called PassageWeather, and it provides 7-day wind and wave forecasts for the world.

http://www.passageweather.com

Check it out... it's a very easy-to-use and fast weather site for sailors.

I am a professional yacht captain, and I developed the site as a service to other sailors, such as yourself... It is a 100% free weather site, with forecasts for just about everywhere in the world you would be sailing.

I just want to spread the word a bit... I hope you find it useful...

Just had a quick look at "PassageWeather" - this looks like a GREAT free weather site.
Anyone planning a passage would be wise to check it out.
Too bad Bill doesn't provide a link to the CruisersForum

Great work and a suggestion. In the Northern Pacific region, create a "Washington/BC/Alaska one.

The "new and improved" PassageWeather.com now has a link to Cruisers Forum on the Links page.

You've treated me well here, it's the least I could do...

Muchas Gracias

Many Thanks,
Just got back to our boat on the Rio Dulce (Guatemala) for another 6 months of cruising and I am sure your website will prove very helpful to the Sun Dog crew here in the western Caribbean. I will pass the word around to other cruisers here on the Rio and to others we meet while out there.
