I find the weather / wind forcasting of xcweather.co.uk is excellent for all areas of the uk.

We like Windfinder, in particular the way you can customise the layout and even embed it in your own site.

Excellent advice - thank you - we did venture out today - and glad we did - not the calmest of seas but great experience and now one we feel more confident in coping with - I guess it's just a case of taking it slowly and learn as you go

Off to have a look at the suggested weather sites
