I have used this app for a couple of years, and in general the app itself is ok, but lately the forecast accuracy has been poor. I spent the last couple of weeks sailing around the SW of the UK. A forecast northerly turned out to be a day long southerly, not such a problem, but then three days on the run the app under estimated wind speeds by about 15kn, culminating in sailing an offshore leg in 40kn rather than the forecast 25kn, the difference being dangerous. Lost faith.

Hello Peter, Sorry to hear our forecast didn’t work out. Comparing Forecast and Superforecast is always helpful. When both models predict a similar weather, the probability of occurrence is highest. Use our forecast map to get an impression of the weather in your area. Check station reports and webcams to get a good picture of the conditions.

gives a good indication of the wind speed and direction. The predicted general weather, sun, rain, temperature are not very accurate

Hello Murray, oh, that's not good. Please send a message out of the feedback form from the app (under "More"). By doing so, we get some information which could help us to find the reason for this. The issue seems to be fixed for the majority of users but some are still having that issue. Thanks a lot for your help!
