What are the best sailing apps?

I have compiled a list of my favourites:

A guide to the best sailing Apps - Halcyon Yachts

Can you think of any others that should be on the list?

You missed SailFlow. The go to app for weather data. Not only do they have all the NOAA weather stations they also have a lot of private ones.

Re: What are the best sailing apps?

I like raceqs. Excellent for beer can and casual racing, uses the phone GPS data to provide a lot of quantitative data. It records your sail, providing loads in information such as SOG, VMG, wind direction, tacking angles, etc. And in a race with other folks using this app, you can replay/review what is going on. It is a useful learning tool.

If you like to better quantify better what you are doing on the water, this works well; and best of all it is free!

Check free Sailgrib WR version. It is fully working, but just for 50nm. Keep in mind, you need your boat's polar file for proper routing.

Re: What are the best sailing apps?

Hi Halcyon1,

It's probably still a niche, but I'm working on and collecting virtual reality sailing apps and games here: https://www.marineverse.com/virtual-...y-sailing-apps - maybe you could include it in your list?

Btw - feedback and ideas how to improve what's there (or what to add/build) is very welcomed. I am working all the time on making those VR experiences better.

Best regards,
Greg
