“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)

Insufficient help info
I supposed the forecast is only as good as the data received from the weather services, but as I write, seas are running 90 degrees from what the forecast shows, and ha for most of the day.
The descriptions of the forecast icons are too vague. “Wave heights” - is that peaks, averages, or what? A single number for wave heights is minimally helpful. What about swells?
I find the app minimally helpful, mostly because it isn’t even remotely accurate!
No professional weather forecast defaults wind direction as the direction the wind is blowing “to”. NONE. Wind direction is ALWAYS stated as “out of”. ALWAYS. No exceptions. Well, except this app. Also, who states precipitation as “mm/in”, or “L/m2”? How about a straight depth in inches, mm or meters?
Why would someone endeavor to write an app about a subject of which they seem al vs. to have so little apparent knowledge?
Have you ever heard of distances being stated in terms of “Metrical/Imperial”? Me neither! How do I get nautical vs. statute miles? And, what does “mp/h” even mean for speed? At least knots is an option.
There are undefined symbols for waves, with numbers that are frightening. What does “7s 9m” represent? It isn’t listed in the key.
Makes me not trust any app from ESIRION.
I totall LOVE the new version. The interface is so incredibly easy, the displays are fantastically clear and understandable and the weather information provided is very thorough. It includes things left out by other apps such as wave height and period, humidity, lightening strikes, etc.
The only problem I have with this ap is that it is not clear how to ADD a location and name it. I will probably figure that out soon. But I think it should have been made easier - at least as easy as the rest of the program. GREAT job!
