One Girl’s Ocean Challenge is proud to announce as our official Weather Routing sponsor for the 2013 Mini Transat race and all the racing in between.  PredictWind will be a valuable tool for us as we train in the Solent this spring with and as we race in the Bay of Biscay and the Irish Sea in the Fastnet race finishing up our qualifying for the 2013 Transat race.

This past summer I found the Isobar Maps and the Grib Files to be an incredible tool.  Their predictions for the Lake Ontario 300 were spot on.  Now I’m looking forward to using the Weather Routing tool and learning all of it’s functionality to help give us an edge on the competition!  Weather routing is one of the single most important elements when heading out.  You need to know what’s coming so that you’re ready to deal with it.  Next time you’re heading out I definitely recommend using  for accurate weather and wind forecasting!
