In SailGrib WR, you can specify for your weather routing amongst other parameters:
– the wind grib file: SailGrib WR includes the regular SailGrib features.
– the start, the destination points and intermediary waypoints
– the departure date and time,
– the speed polar file of your boat. SailGrib WR uses regular Maxsea polar files (.pol extension)
SailGrib WR includes a set of more than 300 polar files for different sailboats.
– wind limits up and downwind
– minimum upwind angle for comfort while cruising
– night efficiency loss for cruising
– mixed routing: use your engine if you are too slow sailing.
– the current
Before you purchase this app, you might want to try the free version which is fully functional but with some limitations.
Grib files are computer-generated forecast files which are sent without review, and are offered on an as-is basis. There is no assurance that the data is accurate or correct. By using such data, you acknowledge and agree to these limitations.
The weather routing module is for planning purpose only.
The maps used either in navigation or by the weather routing algorithm might be very coarse and for example might not include all the islands.
The Location used by the navigation module might be inaccurate.
By using these maps, these data and this algorithm you agree to these limitations and assume all the responsibility for their use.
