  • I have used movingweather for a number of years and have found it very good, easy to use and displays all you need to assist in plotting your voyage. It has a good display and symbols, which make it easy to follow the weather in your area. I would recommend to all sailors.

  • I find the movingweather system very user friendly and a great asset in my passage planning. Many thanks for a very useful window on the weather.

  • We have used movingweather for a number of years now and wouldn't dream of planning a trip without consulting it, nor would we leave port without it installed on our trusty laptop. We have found it to be the most reliable forecast available. On the odd occasion that I have needed help with an update or query, it has been available without delay, most impressive!

    Marshall McCleery

    Owner of "Westlin"
  • I found movingweather to work very satisfactorily even using a slow Iridium link. I sailed from Antigua to Grenada and the forecasting was spot on!
