Hi Paul,

Could you let me know what app the wind and weather screenshot is from? Looks a lot more detailed info than the Accuweather Marine Weather app I'm using currently.

Unfortunately I can't make this trip as I have a wedding up in Manchester [emoji53]. Looks like it'll be a good one, though [emoji106].

Cheers,

Phil
Shame you're unable to attend Phil :( I'm sure there will be another meet soon :thumbsup

The weather app is Meteo Consult Marine http://marine.meteoconsult.co.uk/marine ... recast.php there's an App for your mobile and desktop version. It's a wee bit dificult to navigate until you get used to it but persist and it's worth it ;-)
The other two are Windfinder https://www.windfinder.com/?utm_source= ... 715/-1.407 and XCWeather http://www.xcweather.co.uk
:cheers
I walked through the door marked 'EXIT' and life is now good!

That's great, thanks Paul. Downloading all 3 of those apps in Manchester now!

Have a great trip out. Hopefully I'll make the next one.
