Windsock

Some of us are offshore sailors, and so we have a strong interest in the weather. This simple applet will keep you updated on the current wind and wave conditions near where you live or sail.

Warning: we take no responsibility for your sudden and unexpected departure from the office should the wind conditions turn favorable.

It's free!! As sailors who have spent too much money on sails, bottom paint, Delo 400, etc. we like the idea of free. Not only that, but this is safe and reliable. It only downloads the bare minimum amount of information needed, and contains no spyware, viruses, or malware of any kind.

Comes pre-configured for the Seattle, WA area. (that's where we sail) as well as Florida and the US Northeast (NY to ME) Easily reconfigured for any other location such as Hawaii, So. California, Alaska, etc.
