There are plenty of apps devoted to marine weather observations and forecasting. Learn the strengths and weaknesses of several popular weather apps.

Apps are a convenient and popular way to access wind & wave forecasts, marine observations, Doppler Weather Radar, and prepare the most favorable route for your passage. However not all apps are created equal. Several popular weather-related apps such as Squid Sailing, Predict Wind, Sail Flow, Windy, GRLevel 3, and Radarscope will be reviewed. We will also examine the underlying data sources and discuss the positives and negatives associated with relying on apps for your cruising forecasts.

This webinar, initially offered in December of 2018, has been partially updated to reflect some of the new and updated apps released over the past year and a half.
