Re: Forecasts

The Chesapeake estuary has some interesting local weather effects. For wind speed and direction CBOFS: Surface Winds for Forecast Cycle works great.

Other than that I use current readings from Thomas Point and the various CBOFS buoys in an app on my iPhone. I start watching wind a couple days ahead of longer trips since current is more a factor of wind then lunar tide.

sail fast and eat well, dave
