Detailed Forecasts for your Local Area
Most marine forecasts give you a generalised wind forecast in the morning or the
afternoon. PredictWind shows wind weather updates every hour, with a wind speed
and direction map for your entire local area. The detail you can see in the marine
forecast can help you plan your trip or possibly win your next yacht race.

Get access to Real data from 15,000 live stations across the globe. Let us know
some of your favorite wind observation sites in your local area, and we will do our
best to add them to the PredictWind site.
What is the best day for depart on your next trip coastal or offshore passage? You will
be spanning different weather patterns, and this powerful tool will quickly summarize
the wind conditions you will receive if you left on Day1, Day2, Day3, or Day4.
Simply drag the start and destination waypoints on the Google Map, the weather
routing algorithm will calculate the fastest route (avoiding the land) and summarize
the forecast wind data for the next 4 days of departure.
Simply drag the start and end waypoints on the Google map, and the PredictWind
server will calculate the fastest route or the most comfortable route for your boat
using the high resolution 1km-8km or the global 50km resolution forecasts.
The comfortable route allows you to avoid sailing upwind in strong winds. You decide
your tolerance level, and the PredictWind routing algorithm will do its best to avoid
these areas. You simply need to select a polar curve that matches your boat,
or customize your own polar curve and the optimal route is calculated for all
