Weather forecasting

I am a member of a boat club where I have to reserve a boat to use it. If one is available I can take it out. But I can reserve one in advance too. Of course the best boats are less likely to be available on weekends. I am also self employed, and with short notice can move things around to sneak a day sail during the week. So I am always keeping an eye out for good sailing days. (though any day on the water is better than one in the office).

I use passage weather.com and the NWS weather source. What are some other good sources for weather forecasting?

I like N.O.A.A. best. They are all good.

Re: Weather forecasting

I am interested in off shore resources, say for sailing from SC/NC to Bermuda? What gear and software do offshore sailors use? As you can see, I am on low end of learning curve.
