Dick Carey, owner of Tai-Pain, a Nordhavn 55, said on 4th September 2013, "My wife & I cruise continuously from May to October every year. We rarely visit marinas and have used Movingweather as our primary weather forecasting method for a number of years, backed up by Navtex. We have found it to be highly effective. The 7 day forecast has enabled us to steer clear of bad weather on numerous occasions and the small data files mean we can download forecasts quickly & easily, often via a mobile phone. Movingweather has been worth its weight in gold to us this year in the Aegean & Turkey. It's by far the best package I've seen & deserves to be more widely seen, I would wholeheartedly recommend it".
Dr Erich Schulte, who bases his power boat in Marbella, Spain, said on 26th March 2013 "Best Service I have known" in response to movingweather´s on hand assistance to ensure the software was fully functioning for him.
Andy MacSharry, owner of "Andreas Ahon” (Irish for Andy One), a Jeanneaue Sun 40 said on the 19th February 2013, "I have used Moving Weather 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."
Marshall McCleery, owner of Westlin, a Nordwest 420, whose home port is Bangor in Northern Ireland and main cruising ground is the west coast of Scotland including the Western Isles, said on 16th February 2013 “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!”
Ann Bothwell and her husband, owners of an AZIMUT 55 based in Varazze, said on the 21st December 2012, “We are coming to the end of our 2012 boating season and I would like to tell you how much we have enjoyed and relied on Moving Weather. We are semi-retired and spend about 3 months a year on our boat in the Med, based out of Varazze, Italy. MovingWeather is an important ingredient when planning our travels.”
Paul & Lin Hiley, owners of Sareda, a Trident Voyager 35 and customers of movingweather for the last 4 years, said on 28th July 2010, "We have just arrived back in the UK after another 3,750 miles of sailing. Just thought I would let you know how much we appreciated Movingweather (version 2 and now 3) which we downloaded regularly during our passage and helped us shape our course to the best advantage. We did have some heavy weather but with advance notice we were able to prepare for the worst. We would not be without your weather service and the sat phone on any ocean passage. Many thanks".
Bill Basham of Morangie in Dubrovnik, Croatia said on 10th May 2010 "movingweather3 is a massive improvement on the version I used previously and well worth the wait. Congratulations."
Dave Kitson, owner of Rosa di Venti, a Southerly 35RS, and la ong-term subscriber to movingweather, on 24th March 2010 said "It’s been a long time coming but I have to say that Movingweather 3 is a truly impressive achievement. The clarity of display and the ease and breadth of customisation allow me to see clearly exactly the information I want to see when I want to see it. Well worth the wait! I wish you all success with the new product. You deserve it."
Lewis Keizer, owner of S/V Legacy, a C&C 34 being prepared for a sail to the Sea of Cortez from San Francisco said on 25th April 2010 "I bought MW3 a few hours ago. Thank you for making it work right with Windows 7! It is now superior to the GRIB files and viewer available from Airmail, and I'll be using MW via an Iridium Sat phone when I go out the Golden Gate and turn left next fall."
Ray Fisher, a longstanding customer said on 16th February 2010, "Downloaded "3" several days ago - have loaded it and it is much better than "2". Many thanks - Well done a good bit of software."
Jim Glasgow, a very long standing customer of movingweather, owner of Pinta, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 34 said “ I have now downloaded movingweather3 on to both computers and have been trying to get to know it, a little more complicated than 2. At first I thought about reverting back to movingweather2 but now I am getting my head around 3 it has more going for it definitely than 2, just got to play with it and get used to all it parameters. It is one of the best I’ve seen and because we have relied on its forecast for a number of years since we subscribed we always found it accurate in our area where we sail and so more reliable compared to others. If you’re not a sailor, it’s hard to appreciate when you’re on anchor and you check out the weather and find big winds coming your way so you stay put, and when they do come as forecast your still comfy with a cup of tea in a safe place. That is what a good forecasting system is all about. Thank you".
David Wright, on 19th January 2010 said "Being a sailor, as you might expect, and therefore always interested in weather patterns, I have found this programme most helpful and informative as it has taught me how to assess weather patterns over a wide area. For example, my boat at present is in the Ionian Islands and having studied the wind patterns for that area area over a period of some months I find I can predict the local weather much more accurately for myself than just relying on the regional forecast.. The system makes a great deal of data available and seems reasonably accurate with the forecasts."
Pascal Ryan says "I have a Beneteau Antares 13.80 motor yacht. I used the software intensively at the end of July when I was weather-bound in Brittany waiting for the right window to "make a dash for it" from Brest to the Scilly Isles and on to Dublin. I had to get home, but in my type of boat (ie. not sail) getting the weather right was critical because gale and near-gale force winds were blowing continuously from the Wednesday through to the Sunday night, and then a bit of a lull in the winds on the Monday before picking up very strong again on the Tuesday morning. I was checking the novingweather forecasts for wind strength and direction every hour or two. I left Brest at 6am the Monday morning, was in Scilly Isles fuelling up at 12.30 and tied up safely in Dun Laoire at 11pm that night. In other words a perfect passage, with the wind behind me all the way, so I got it just right. I found MovingWeather very useful indeed.
Martin Bedford, Skipper of Moon Shadow a Fairline Sedan 41ft overall says “we were on the Royal Southern YC Euro Rally and movingweather’s accurate forecasting enabled us to dash across the Channel early and in good weather, although cutting out a visit to Guernsey The following day closed in and we would not have returned for at least another 5 days and then only in a very short and uncomfortable window . It was movingweather's decision to run for home and what a good one. As power boaters it is essential to have accurate forecasts and predictions. Thanks once again, this is the second holiday we have cut short based on movingweather’s forecasts, but we are so pleased we did.
Doug Hearn, a retired RYA instructor, who previously owned Gosport School of Navigation, and Pembrokeshire School of Navigation, actively running for 15 years, skipper of Annie’s Song, a 32' Nantucket Clipper "Annie's Song". Says “We have just arrived home from 3 months' sailing from West Wales to Marseilles. May we say that movingweather was very easy to access through our 3G phone when WiFi was not available (which was most of the time). At about 48p, this was very economical. Also, your forecasts were spot-on. We upped the wind a little to take into account the gusts. Many thanks.”
Paula Taylor of "Endless Summer" a Sealine T46 motorboat says " 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."
Kurt Antonius says: "I just want to thank the support team at movingweather for all the trouble you went to to help install movingweather on my PC. That is going above and beyond and shows a lot of customer commitment. I have logged on and am enjoying it. It is a very cool program."
Angus Cater, having sailed around South America, says: "I was planning a trip around South America and down to Smith Island in Antarctica in my 35 ft ketch Harrac. What was the one thing I needed? Reliable weather forecasting! I looked at several options but decided on Movingweather because I was able to download the information through my Satphone straight on to my computer. The software would then turn it into something intelligible. I used it for 18,500 miles and found it, as much as any weather forecasting ever is, extremely reliable. On our transatlantic crossing from the Canaries to Grenada we were able to spot the elusive trade winds and turned South to find them.
Within two days we were powering along, goose-winged, in a steady force 5, towards Grenada at 7 knots. We might be sitting in the middle of the Atlantic today if we hadn't been able to spot the strong North-Easterlies on Movingweather. On the way home up the east coast of South America to the Cape Verde Islands we made tactical decisions several times based on our wind forecasting. I found it particularly useful being able to overlay the wind, and the pressure and when we were going through the Doldrums it gave us hope that the interminably variable winds weren't going to last for ever. Easy to download, simple to use and reliable. Can one ask for more?
Andy Renshaw, Owner and skipper of Wild Rover, a Hunter Impala Yacht from Ramsgate, says . “movingweather is an excellent product and is far better than other weather products I have used. Incidentally I have been sailing around the UK and last year I sailed around the top of Scotland and down the west coast to Ardrossan and movingweather on my laptop with a Vodaphone internet USB stick was indispensible. I managed to get a 2G connection way out past Cape Wrath and movingweather had no problems quickly downloading it's data”
To quote from Robert Holbrook MD of Admiral Marine Insurance, "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!"
Kevin Butler at Cobbs Quay Berth Holders Association says "Whilst visiting the Channel Islands last year we were pleased to find a new type of weather forecast to complement the paper ones. It was watched by many and proved to be a solution to a problem that I had been trying to overcome since the termination of MetWebb. This new approach for weather forecasting in marinas and at home gave me the picture I required for extended cruising.
movingweather has given me that incite to plan with confidence, its simple to use program features and a one off subscription allows me to get the animated forecast whenever and wherever I want. Updateable at my convenience and accurate, the boating public and perhaps all marinas should consider this modern approach. It is a valuable additional resource for me to make informed passage planning weather decisions."
Richard Foster, Skipper of Swan 112/001 "anemos" says "We've used movingweather's service now for 2 years and it's brilliant. The software is simple to use with easily understood grapohics and very accurate forecasts. We cruise Northern Europe, the Meditteranean and the Caribbean, and have tried lots of routing services over the years. I rate movingweather the best and very good value for money."
Roger Binley says "I am delighted with movingweather found it easy and very quick to use. Long range forcast is as accurate as any other but much quicker, no time wasted in finding provider for the area you are in. The email function is also very easy to use and saves considerably when on Satellite phone. "
Dick Turnbull, another long standing customer, say "I purchased movingweather for 2 reasons; the first was for a reasonably accurate 7 day forecast (including pressure maps, wind speeds etc) for work – I run 3 climbing and outdoor activities shops in the Peak District and weather is a crucial determinant of how busy we may be and many of our customers want an idea from us as to what the weather is going to do over the next few days – and secondly for my personal use sailing, usually off the W coast of Scotland. In 2006 I sailed to N Norway with a crew of climbers and we found the fact that we could get a movingweather forecast for up to 7 days to the areas where we were going to be i.e. the Norwegian Sea, all the way up the Norwegian coast etc (no decent weather forecasts available in English) in a manner which helped me to understand what was happening – pressure charts etc – proved to be greatly helpful and incredibly useful in planning where and when to go. Leaving Shetland with a 7 day forecast for a potential 5 day voyage was very reassuring and very accurate! When in the Lofoten Islands we saw a 36 hour gap in the weather coming which enabled us to sail to Norway’s national mountain, Stetind, and climb it before the rain re-established itself over the area. Without checking movingweather regularly we would have missed this ‘gap’ and missed the chance of completing the objective of our voyage.
This year we are sailing to the Faroes and I am relying on movingweather to help us plan our day to day sailing decisions, particularly on the return trip where we may have trouble in getting useful forecasts that we can understand! I use movingweather regularly and find it reliably accurate as long as you use common sense and expect less accuracy the longer the forecast time. The confidence that having a graphic weather forecast gives is significant and well worth the money!"
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.
