Sailors Love Saildrone Forecast!
Saildrone Forecast is designed for use on both land and water, but with wind-powered water activities at our core, sailors (windsurfers and kite surfers) love the hyper-local wind speed and direction and current forecasts.
What makes Saildrone Forecast superior to other available sailing weather apps is that it’s updated on a day-to-day basis with fresh high-definition forecasts available each morning,” said Will Paxton, a San Francisco-based pro sailor.

Better Data Means Better Forecasts
Saildrone’s mission is to collect and share more data about the planet. The oceans cover more than 70% of Earth’s surface and drive weather, regulate temperature, and ultimately support life on Earth. Much of the weather we experience on land starts in the oceans, so we believe weather forecasting should start in the oceans, too.
Our global fleet of saildrones continuously sails the world’s oceans collecting atmospheric and oceanographic data. These expeditions generate unmatched, proprietary high-resolution data sets that are used by scientists at the world’s leading science organizations to better understand air-sea interactions and improve long-range weather forecasting and prediction of extreme weather events.

User Reviews :
I am pulling for this app, seriously! It has great information on very specific locations, the design is particularly beautiful for a weather app, it is easy to use, easy to search/favorite locations, and the features look to be very promising if they mature (I hope you add the surf feature!). I see the potential and this app could really be amazing.
My one critique/skepticism is on temperature accuracy. Upon first use in LA, it seemed to me like the temperatures reported at all locations were too cold. When comparing to other resources, Saildrones was always the coldest by anywhere from 1-10 degrees. I have a hard time believing everyone else is that far off. I spent the day outside with most other apps reporting around 68 degrees while Saildrones reported 64, and 37 years of life experience tells me that 68 was more accurate. Looking out in the forecast, the coldness trend continues for all 7 days compared to other forecasts.
I’ll be using this app, hoping that my skepticism will disappear and that the temperatures will prove to be spot on. Good luck and keep up the good work!
