Sail Tactics

Sail Tactics offers the highest-resolution forecasts in the world, with our 200-meter resolution wind forecasts for San Francisco Bay and The Solent (Sydney coming September 2017). We also offer 1000-m Day-Of ocean and multi-day Outlook forecasts in our forecasting areas.. In SF Bay we also offer custom tide forecasts, developed especially for America’s Cup 34. Subscribe at www.sailtactics.com to get a free trial.

What sets our forecast apart is two things. One is resolution; two is the freshness. Our 200-m forecasts are 25X more resolved than our competitors 1000-m forecasts (5×5=25 in 2D). Our forecasts see the hills, gaps, sea breeze fronts, and mountains where you sail 25X times better than the leading competitor’s forecast. Second is our forecasts are made just-in-time on the morning of your race. Each morning we fire up our supercomputer to bring you the best forecast on the morning of your sail. Forecasts get less accurate over time, so why settle for old forecasts when you can have the best, freshest forecast available?

Our maps colors and barbs/vectors were custom designed to be significant to sailors. Our color maps approximate a boat’s polar chart. Under light winds conditions, finding 2 more knots of breeze could allow you to roll your competitors. Whereas, the difference between 12 and 14 knots is marginal in boat speed. In high-wind conditions, you’re likely trying to depower your sails, so we’ve cut the scale off at 21 knots to allow for maximum information in the range that sailors care about (but you can still read the wind barbs in 5-knot increments).

Our wind forecaster and founder, Dr. Mike Dvorak, custom tunes the model to each forecast region. We pull in the best available weather and geographic datasets to initialize and drive the model. Each model configuration undergoes rigorous tuning and validation. We bring our experience from the offshore wind energy industry and atmospheric-turbulence simulation to show you where the advantageous wind shifts are and where the best pressure is.

ReefCast Marine Weather

ReefCast provides you with the most accurate and confident forecast available, so you can spend your time fishing, instead of worrying about the weather.

Pick any point on the water and the simplicity of the ReefCast design provides the key weather information you need in one easy graphic, without unnecessary features you will never use.

While other Apps provide the standard NOAA Wavewatch III® forecast and buoy data, ReefCast goes one step further. The ReefCast Interactive Model shows a more accurate 3 mile by 3 mile forecast that is based on our proprietary software model. The ReefCast Ensemble Model will then simultaneously display the confidence you should have in the forecast for your selected location. No other forecasting tool gives you this essential level of detail.

With the basic app, you can:
· View the National Weather Service Forecast – displays the NWS forecast for your location

· View Buoy data – displays the latest data output from buoys measuring wind speed, air temperature, water temperature, wave height, and more

With the Premium ReefCast Subscription you gain access to:
· The Reefcast Interactive Model – displays a 7-day forecast of Wind Direction, Wind Speed, Wave Height, and Wave Period in one simple graph

· The Reefcast Ensemble Model – displays a “behind the scenes” look at the model to show you how accurate the forecast will be over the next 7 days

Storm Alerts

Das iPhone 6 oder höher, warnt vor drohendem Sturm! Und das unabhängig von einer Netzverbindung. Die App Storm Alerts benutzt dazu den eingebauten Luftdrucksensor. Storm Alerts alarmiert optisch und akustisch ab einen Luftdruckgradienten, der die Windstärke 6 prognostiziert. Dazu werden gleichzeitig 5 Analyseintervalle berechnet. Diese liefern permanente Prognosen für die bevorstehende Windstärke. Bei der regelmäßigen Aufgabe des Skippers, den Barometerstand zu beobachten, unterstützt Storm Alerts zuverlässig. Wer also sein iPhone auf See nicht anderswertig nutzt, kann mit dieser kleinen App die Sicherheit an Bord auf einfache Weise erhöhen. Durch die 3 fache Ausgabe der Ergebnisse, in Form von Zahlenwert, Analysetexte und farblich dargestellte Windstärken, ergibt sich eine kompakte Darstellung der Luftdrucksituation in den letzten 3 Stunden. Der Skipper kann somit mit nur einem kurzen flüchtigen Blick seine Wettereinschätzung erweitern. Lassen sie sich ihre persönliche Windprognose durch Storm Alerts bestätigen und sehen sie unserer Erde beim atmen zu!

Sie erhalten eines der leistungsfähigsten Sturmwarnsysteme die es gibt. Um die Leistungsfähigkeit zu gewährleisten, müssen jedoch einige Punkte berücksichtigt werden. Für iPhone 6 & 6 Plus, iPhone 6s & 6s Plus und iPhone 7.

1. Ein Barometer für die Wetterprognose darf die Höhe seines Standortes während seiner Analyse nicht verändern. Genau so ist es auch bei dieser App. Um zuverlässige Prognosen abgeben zu können, darf ihr iPhone6/7 die Aufenthaltshöhe nicht verändern. Bei der Verwendung an Bord einer Yacht, ist dies sowieso ausgeschlossen, da wir uns immer auf Meeresniveau befinden. Gefahr besteht aber bei der mobilen Verwendung an Land. Dort werden die Prognosen durch eine Niveauänderung sofort verfälscht. Auch an Land darf die App nur bei gleichbleibender Meereshöhe verwendet werden. Eine kleine Funktion wart den Anwender, falls er seine Standorthöhe zu weit verändert hat.

2. Die App muss ihre Analyse permanent durchführen. Um die Analyse fehlerfrei durchführen zu können, darf die Berechnung nicht unterbrochen werden. Normalerweise lässt das Betriebssystem von Apple keinen Zugriff auf den Luftdrucksensor zu, wenn die App im Hintergrund läuft. Also wenn sie die App durch den Home-Button schließen, wird die Berechnung normalerweise unterbrochen. Ein kleiner Kunstgriff aber, läßt sie dennoch 3 Minuten im Hintergrund weiterlaufen. Zeit um einen Anruf zu tätigen oder andere Sachen am iPhone zu erledigen. Nach 2 Minuten und 30 Sekunden werden sie durch die App erinnert, dass sie zur Anwendung kurz zurückkehren müssen, um die Berechnung nicht zu unterbrechen. Falls das aber dennoch geschieht, wird ein Rechenfehler mitgeteilt. Sie können die Analyse danach neu starten.

3. Damit die App kontinuierlich analysieren kann, müssen sie unter Einstellungen, Batterie die „Autom.Sperre“ auf “Nie” einstellen. Weiteres sollte das iPhone an eine Stromquelle angeschlossen sein.

Wenn all diese Punkte erfüllt sind, dann reicht ein einmaliges aktivieren der App und sie werden automatisch ab einer Luftdruckveränderung, die mindestens Windstärke 6 hervorbringt, akustisch und optisch alarmiert. Natürlich liefert die App permanent eine Prognose auf die Windstärke, mit der in Zukunft zu rechnen ist. Somit bietet diese App eine Windvorhersage ohne einen Onlinezugang und trägt zur Erhöhung der Sicherheit an Bord bei!

Nun viel Spaß mit ihrer leistungsstarken Luftdruckanalyse-App.
