[edit] Sailing Weather

I just wanted to let you know about a new Weather site for sailors... it's called PassageWeather.com, and it contains 7-day wind and wave forecasts for the entire world.

http://www.passageweather.com

Check it out... it's a very easy-to-use and fast weather site for sailors and adventurers --62.43.146.60, 15:42, 15 June 2007

Looks good - do you have any idea, if it is possible to deep-link certain regions, e.g. to link directly to the Atlantic-forecast? --Peter 08:57, 16 June 2007 (CEST)

[edit] Northeast Passage and the Northwest Passage!

Sailed Northeast Passage in 2009, 29 days non-stop Vardo (Norway) - Bering Strait (Alaska). With no suport. The boat "RX II" was a fiberglass boat at 36 feet, and was 35 years old.

Helps happy to reply to any questions about navigating through the passages.

Because of bureaucracy (to sail transit) in Russia, we chose to sail the Northwest Passage in 2010. Because we were pressed for time, and used up our time in Providenia (Russia). To range through the Northwest Passage within 29 september.

Would love to see you include this in our database. --Skippern 12:05, 3 December 2012 (CET)

[edit] Google map / alternatives

There have been passed C+D (Cease and Desist) letters to several sites using links to Google Map API, specially where the pointer GEOCODE is in use due to a Trademark lawsuite. A consequence of this might be that the Google Map API calls could be broken. Therefor, this project, and other similar should investigate using API's not voulnerable to this form of lawsuites. --Skippern 20:54, 7 February 2013 (CET)
