The Offshore App allows you to seamlessly download multiple GRIB files for your coastal and offshore passages.

Quickly download and view GRIB files, weather routes, GMDSS maps and text forecasts, AIS data and satellite imagery.

Access all the world’s top ranking forecast models for reliable and accurate weather data, including ECMWF, SPIRE, UKMO, GFS and more. Our very own PWG & PWE models offer incredible accuracy and a record-breaking 1km resolution.

Recommend to all my clients

Teach2sail has logged over 50,000nm offshore supporting owners of various motor and sailing vessels. We use Predict Wind via SSB radio and the Iridium Go every time. Predict Wind has helped us successfully navigate all kinds of conditions from going between two cylones in the South Pacific Ocean to avoiding the Atlantic high/doldrums by moving from one weather system to another via a narrrow "bridge" of opportunity in the Atlantic. Presently crossing the Indian Ocean and wouldn't do it without them!

Shockingly good!

We've sailed 3,000 nm in 3 months, using Predictwind several times a day to get the best route, and the precision of its forecast is very impressive. We couldn't fault it once...
Everytime we thought we would outsmart the app by taking a different route, we ended up back on the predicted route, as the weather always imposed its rule on us, as forecasted by Predictwind,

Not What It Use To Be!

I was an early adopter of Predict Wind and was somewhat of an evangelist until recently. I've noticed over the past year that first, the weather forecasting is getting progressively worse, and the weather routing is, well, frankly, dangerous. After downloading a recent update, I began receiving numerous error messages. After a few days of exchanges, they realized they pointed their solution to a Beta Server and fixed it; by then, I found myself in the North Atlantic staring down 4M Waves and 35 Knot Winds. There are more and more options out there that I've started using in addition to Predict Wind.
