Puget Sound Ferry System. Hard to beat that! Post sites like this in your area, I'm sure there are others.

I always check National Data Bouy Center. Not exactly real time in all locations, but it gives more than just wind.

The sailors at the sail club to which we've applied for membership all recommended SailFlow. Don't know how "live" their data is, or what you guys mean by "live." Everything on the page I'm currently looking at appears to be 2-3 hours old.

There's a guy near here who has his own private weather station website. http://home.comcast.net/~mel.wallbank/

My favourite however, is the windex at the top of my mast.

It's on my favorites. Not just because of current conditions, butalso the way they let you zoom in and pick a reporting station and see history and a forecast. I like the display they use also (the arrows along the time line with N at the top) as it is incredibly obvious how to read it.
