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.

PassageWeather - Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers

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... Check it out, it's a very easy-to-use and fast weather site for sailors... I hope you find it useful...

The weather data used for our Surface Pressure charts (as well as the Wind charts) comes from the GFS weather model (provided by NOAA and the US National Weather service).

I like the short time intervals and how you can move it forward to see what happens.

Been checking it out a bit since you posted the site. Great stuff.

Great site. Thank you for putting it up.

However, tonight 12/19/2007 04:30 Z (the 18th at 10:30 CST in the US) - is either hung or VERY VERY slow!!!

I'm trying to look at CA to Mexico and I can't get the full page. I also can't get the wind.zip file for that area...
