Weather

A favorite topic of the boating people. And justifiably so, because going downwind in a breeze with the sun shining down on you is a world apart from beating into a gale with the rain mixing with the spray from the sea to make everything wet, wet, wet. Mind you, for some, that is an attraction too!

Below you'll find links to excellent weather sites covering every little corner of the world. And every square inch of ocean.
