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.
