Dont listen to him. Just cos he's not allowed out he'll tell you it's gonna drizzle even when it's sunny.

In this day and age, we mustn't forget to put our heads out of the odd window so that we can 'sniff' the air. It still works.

On the other hand, you can download 3-day GRIB files for FREE from here:

http://www.raymarine.com/raymarine/d...ion=3&page=149

I have used these in anger on an iBook and they are very good and seem accurate when compared to the BBC etc. Only thing might be that the 'ticks' that are plotted might be a bit too far apart when one is considering a quick whizz in a RIB.

www.theyr.net

We swear by www.theyr.net . Over the last few years we have found it to be very accurate with updates every 3 hours. We especially have found it's wind strengths and directions to be spot on even down to a 10 square mile section of Galway or Sligo Bays on the West Coast of Ireland.

Kind regards,

Stuart

www.windguru.cz

www.windguru.cz seems bang on for hour by hour wind strength/dir forecasts out to 24hr on the East Coast. Wave height is pretty accurate too.

Most UK beaches are listed.
