SailFlow is the absolute best at predicting the wind speed and direction in the Stuart, Florida area, every day. Thanks!
The forecast is accurate and comprehensive
As a college sailing coach, I use this app as my go to source for wind data and forecasts
This is an app with many great features and a good user interface. It's also very expensive for the "premium" subscription. I used only the free version. During California's many winter storms of late 2022 and early 2023 this app was *highly* inaccurate in its wind predictions. It's a little hard to understand how an app that shows actual versus predicted wind could be so thoroughly and completely wrong so much of the time and show the errors on its default screens. Some days showed predicted wind under 4kts, but actual wind was over 16kts. Other days showed predicted 20kt winds, but actual wind was 3kts. I would hate to be relying on this app for my safety at sea. Both Windy and Saildrone provide similar functionality at a *much* lower subscription price. Both Windy and Saildrone appear to be far more accurate than Sailflow at predicting wind direction and velocity.
This app has a crashing problem, which is a bummer. As a Sailing professional, I rely pretty heavily on any wind information I can access.
Sorry to see that a recurring subscription is now required. This had been a useful app for my occasional sailing. I would have upgraded when I started to sail more frequently—however, I will find another source now.
As a professional meteorologist and sailor, I have been using this app almost daily for years. It is such a useful tool for looking at current conditions and relevant model data. Only wish is that more models like the ECMWF could be made available in the future.
I use this app everyday as a sailing instructor. I find it accurate and relevant.
So helpful on those days when looking out the window isn’t enough!
