“Yachting Weather” is the cost-free and user friendly weather App for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad to receive precise sea weather predictions for the next 3 days (2 days on iPad) - or with an upgrade to “Yachting Weather EXPERIENCE”- for the next five days.
You receive all marine weather predictions according to your current GEO location or any other sea area worldwide determined by GPS, a single click on the map tool or by manual input.
Whether you are sailing, motor yachting or doing other water sport activities, you can configure “Yachting Weather” exactly to your needs with numerous options.
The forecasts for the next three days come in six hour intervals (for five days in three hour intervals with “Yachting Weather EXPERIENCE”) and are available worldwide.
Due to the high spatial resolution of 0,15° to 0,25° (which is comparable to approx 12x12 sea miles). Conventional GFS weather models work with a resolution of 0,5° to 1° and assume equal weather conditions for a sea area of 60 x 60 nautical miles. On open sea or nearby the coastline a high resolution forecast for wind and waves can be advantageous. Changing winds, gusts or rough sea within short distances could be missed by large scale forecast models.
Besides a higher spatial resolution WEATHER365 weather models integrate topographical, geographical and vegetal characteristics - especially of the coastal areas - which have influence on weather trends and weather evolution. Even bathymetry data are included because of their impact on wave height and length.
You receive exact predictions for your designated position.
All weather data are based on optimized WRF and Wave Watch III weather models and calculated and updated four times a day by WEATHER365.
(wave data is only available for overseas territories, inland waters are not covered)

Paying doesn’t stop the ads
I paid for the upgrade but it didn’t stop the ads or the constant reminders to upgrade. E-mailing them didn’t help.

Temperamental about moving location
It could be great, but changing locations is extremely difficult and trying to do so causes the program to crash. It needs a database of locations and the ability to set a home port, rather than finding the location on a map. It should be possible to save favourite locations, as in other weather programs. Using the Current Location facility is useless if you do not live by the sea and are planning a weekend's sailing. To look ahead to a holiday sailing location is almost impossible, as it takes an age for the map to redraw. It would be better to use the simple Google Maps rather than the satellite view which requires much more data transmission. Trying to specify a Greek location caused the program to crash, and then it would not return to a simple location like Lymington. A bit more development could improve this good idea considerably.
I use this app every week for the Chichester area, and I find it very good. I drive 50 miles to my boat and I make my decision on whether I should go or not by the information that it gives me.
So far it has not let me down.
I would like to see an updated layout which is more easy to read in poor light. I don't like the blue background colour. But that is just me and not a fault with the app!
