Great discussion - possible article

Hi guys,

Caroline Strainig here from the Aussie mag Cruising Helmsman. You seem ahead of us with iPad/iPhone usage. Looking for someone really cluey who has used one out cruising to write an article. Any volunteers? Suggestions as to people you know who would be good to ask? Lot of interest in it here.
Also interested in other good practical articles. Happy for you to sell on to a US mag like Blue Water Sailing afterwards.

Cheers
Caro

WindAlert is a good free app. I also use BuoyData and Navionics Marine.

Weather Bug is also a good radar app, sailing in the Chesapeake it works well for me.

I have to give a shout out to Grog's Knots as a fun app. I have it and a 2 foot legnth of line in my briefcase I break out in airports etc. for fun.

Have any of you seen wind alert for iPhone? Observe the latest data from from over 40,000 weather stations and get a push notification if one of them meets your favorite conditions.

Hi Carol,

Suggest you talk to Jeff Siegel at ActiveCaptain.com -- I think he has an article written already on his web site. Please tell him Dave on Auspicious sent you.

Also have a new ipad 2 and have found lots of apps from logbooks to tides and navagation as well as weather forcasts simply to seach for yacht and boat and you will find them for your area.
Cruising Helmsmen
I did read a blog on a chap that uses his ipad only from Vic sailing a Jeanneau I think the blog was on Jeanneau Owners site he reports back after 1 year of use and is still happy to use instead of a chart plotter.
