La meteorología marina juega un papel importante en el disfrute de un viaje en barco. A menudo, los pronósticos locales marinos no son fiables. ¿Por qué no probar gratis los pronósticos de PredictWind en tu próximo viaje? PredictWind te ayudará a hacer tu viaje más rápido, seguro y cómodo.

Los pronósticos marinos locales, a menudo, son conservadores e informan de la velocidad máxima esperada de viento para una región grande. Con un mapa de pronóstico PredictWind, puedes ver toda la región y saber exactamente dónde esperar zonas de alta velocidad para ayudar a planificar su viaje.

Day Trips

The PredictWind Basic Package is great entry level package for those not venturing too far from home, but want the most accurate marine weather forecast available.

The wind speed and direction graphs utilise the most accurate 1km resolution wind forecast, and although you cannot see the 1km resolution maps, you can view the general weather situation with the 8km resolution maps.

You can also access this information in text format on your mobile phone at no extra charge.

Coastal Trips

PredictWind’s Standard Package is suited for coastal trips, where you want to see how the weather pattern will vary over the whole area. How close are the strong wind areas? Where are the best places for anchorages and shelter? Where are the best overnight anchorages? What is the best course and time to depart? You will be surprised at how viewing a forecast wind map will help you plan the trip with confidence.

Free GRIB Viewer

Use the Free Offshore App to automatically download and View the PredictWind GRIB files. This tool is ideally suited for retrieving the forecasts over Satellite & SSB communications and will ensure you always have access to the forecast when there is no internet connection available. In addition get access to weather routing, GMDSS text forecasts and Satellite Imagery.

Smartphone Apps

You will have also have access to the PredictWind Android iPhone/iPad Apps, so you can get the latest text forecast on your mobile at no extra charge even if you don’t have access to your computer.

Weather Routing

The Professional Package now includes the world’s first  online weather routing. Watch the video on Weather Routing. Simply drag the start and end waypoints on the map, and the PredictWind server will plan the fastest route or the most comfortable route for your boat using the high resolution 1km-8km wind forecasts.  The comfort route allows you to avoid motoring in strong wind and wave conditions. You decide your tolerance level, and the PredictWind routing algorithm will avoid these regions in the forecast if possible. You simply need to define your boats’ polar and the optimal path is calculated for both PredictWind forecasts, the NOAA GFS forecast, and the Canadian CMC forecasts.

The routing algorithm is also clever enough to avoid the land, right down to a 20m resolution level. So now you can can accurately see your optimal route and know exactly what conditions you can expect along the trip.

Departure Planning

What is the best day for depart on your next coastal passage? Watch the video on Departure Planning. You will be spanning different weather patterns, and this powerful tool will quickly summarize the wind conditions you will receive if you left on Day1, Day2, Day3, or Day4. Simply drag the start and destination waypoints on the map, the weather routing algorithm will calculate the fastest route  (avoiding the land) and summarize the wind forecast data for the next 4 days of departure.

The Standard Package is suited for coastal powerboating.

Offshore Passages

PredictWind can provide a 14 day marine forecast using the 50km resolution model for any region in the world. When offshore and away from land effects, it is not necessary to get a high resolution forecast. However you can be assured to get the best forecast available using the same technology that is used to generate the high resolution forecasts. The reduced smoothing in PredictWind’s weather model you will allow you to see wind features that are not picked up by other weather models. In addition we use two data sources for the weather model, to produce dual forecasts for comparison. The closer the wind forecasts, the more confidence you can have in the accuracy for your comfort and safety.

Barcos a Motor Testimonials

Stu Sanders

He navegado durante cuarenta años en barcos pequeños y tengo un profundo respeto por el mar y las condiciones meteorológicas variables. Mi principal preocupación es siempre el tiempo, no la temperatura o la lluvia, sólo el viento. Mi velocidad mínima de planificación es de 25 nudos y no quiero encontrarme atrapado en vientos fuertes y ni grandes olas.

Ahora utilizo Predictwind como mi principal fuente de información el tiempo, antes de cada viaje y, desde el principio, me sorprendió su alta fiabilidad.

Robbie Wallace

Como antiguo navegante de carreras de yates, durante 35 años, obtener información precisa sobre el viento  ha sido siempre el punto de partida de mi planificación y ejecución. Ahora, como capitán profesional, a bordo de grandes yates de motor, a menudo me siento frustrado con la escasa información de viento disponible en la timonera. Los captadores de viento, en la cabeza de mástil, están montados entre dos antenas de comunicación o de radares, por ejemplo. Claro que, en un yate de motor, no necesitamos conocer los cambios sutiles del viento, pero sigue siendo extremadamente importante para mí saber la velocidad y la dirección del viento tan exactamente como sea posible, especialmente en una noche negra. Siempre he planeado mis travesías utilizando las páginas habituales de Internet para archivos GRIB y datos de boya, pero ahora, con PredictWind.com, tengo por primera vez la capacidad de ver información de alta resolución local durante el viaje. ¿Puedo continuar por la ruta ludrómica o debo aproximarme a la costa porque se pronostica un viento de alta mar a las 2 de la madrugada? ¡Con PredictWind.com, tomar estas decisiones es ahora mucho más fácil! ¡Es casi como tener un nuevo instrumento de viento en el puente!

    Propietario de Horizon Navigation, un servicio de ferries y de buques comerciales, Robbie Wallace acumula más de 370,000 millas de experiencia en alta mar. En la actualidad, posee una licencia de US 1600 ton Masters para Motor o Vela, All Oceans, con aval asociado y STCW95.

    Navegante aclamado en carreras Robbie, ha navegado 13 Transpacs de 1975 a 2007 navegando a bordo de Andrews Turbo 70 Victoria, Andrews Turbo 70 Magnitud, SC 70 Mongoose, Petersen 68 Cheetah, el Transpac 52 J-Bird III, Andrews 56 Medicine Man SC70 Skylark y Kernan 70 Peligroso.
