Philosophy We Strive For
We strive to create apps that facilitate the preparation of your sailing trips or races. Our goal is that, once at sea, you can sail better, faster and safer.
We seek to make effective no-frills apps.
As Marine Weather Forecast is the basis of every good preparation, we started by publishing SailGrib: an app that allows you to get weather grib files from different sources while on earth or at sea. We then added a tidal module such that with a glance, you get the essential parameters of your sailing trip.
A Weather Routing software is an incredible tool to optimize sailing routes for the safety of navigation. These software were unfortunately unreachable to sailors for many reasons: cost, lack of polar diagrams, complicated user interface … We’ve simplified it all by creating an app where everything is included – weather, polars, tidal currents – and is still simple to use!
The next step was to add Navigation modules. We added an NMEA 0183 and an AIS interface. Real time performance data are now calculated, AIS targets are displayed and an alarm is raised in case of danger.
Finally, we added marine charts: you can download for free NOAA raster charts or buy, as in app purchase, atlases of marine charts derived from UKHO or SHOM data;
We are proud of the accomplishment and the feedback from our growing user community pushes us to continue the development of the apps…
