Tymadman is on a distinguished road
Coolsailing, check out "iRegatta" which is a dedicated sailing app for the iPad. It's primarily geared toward racing but does display your wind info and GPS info so is still useful when not racing.
I currently use iRegatta on my WiFi only iPad with a BadElf GPS dongle.
I've been building a NMEA to WiFi bridge with the aim of getting rid of the BadElf dongle and connecting a separate GPS unit (maybe even my VHF radio which has GPS built in) to the NMEA to WiFi bridge and sending the data to my iPad over WiFi.
