My site arose from a wish to use my long and wide experience in meteorology and sailing to help others to whom weather forecasts, and marine weather forecasts in particular, are mysteries. If you find this site useful then remember that it seeks to contribute to safety at sea. You might like to send a donation to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, or your national equivalent, mentioning this site of course.
