Love this FREE app
I use this app all the time with no problems. We used it to travel the ICW Atlantic this fall and it was our guide to our travel plans each day. Only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that on my iPhone (iPhone 6s) it displays the map and locations making it easy to use. When my husband loads the app on his iPhone 8 we cannot get the map to appear, even though we compared all our settings to ensure we were the same. He has the latest iOS loaded so not sure if it is an issue with the iPhone 8? Would highly recommend this easy to use app and hope to get it working on the iPhone 8 with a Street / Wind map like it does on my iPhone 6s.
Free version okay, don’t pay for upgrade!
Clunky and buggy but still has a wide range of stations and data beyond just wind speeds. However, none of the cool sounding features promised with the paid subscription actually work. Support is responsive and polite but unable to fix the issues. After the standard wipe and reinstall dance they’ve got nothing. Not clear what the money is for, but it doesn’t really get you anything the free version doesn’t already have. Edit: Free and broken is better than paying and broken but I don’t see how the dev response here has anything to do with the problems...
Very helpful app
This app makes sailing so much more enjoyable. Knowing when the optimal sailing conditions will be you can make informed decisions on whether it not to sail and when. As we all have experienced, heading out only to find little to no wind on a given day is frustrating. This app eliminates that for this sailor as I know when to head to the boat and when to stay home.
They update enough to keep app working well. This app gives precise and unique info for guys like me that race sailboats where wind, waves and weather in general matter. Seeing all history, current and forecast weather is important for both safety and more so to be able to anticipate changes that give me an edge in competition! Thanks guys and gals.
SailFlow VS Climate Change
I rely heavily on SF in my sailing decision making. Unfortunately, however, it is becoming less reliable. I look to it for trends and timing mostly because direction and strength are seldom close especially when significant changes are anticipated. Climate change is steadily altering our weather patterns and the timing and frequency of SailFlow’s updates need to be reconsidered. Thanks for your many years of service.
Without the help of SailFlow we would have to go back to using noaa. We feel very comfortable with this forecast. We have been able to leave the dock knowing that we can beat the weather, we used to think long and hard in the past. You have made our travels much more comfortable.
Useful point forecasts/observations for wind, etc
Neat app. The pay version is probably cooler. It’s among 3-4 sources I compare before choosing where to launch the I-14. I appreciate the hourly, point forecasts for wind. I also enjoy the perspective and ease of zooming in and out, and navigating (heh) around the map. Seems as accurate as anything so far. -Eli (Seattle)
Been using this app randomly to verify what other apps say about weather conditions. Also use it for posting wind meter readings. Now I’m using the radar more than others. Im not sure why but it’s functional when other apps are not.
Great app, but several stations are no longer on the app
I love this app. As a sailing instructor in Oak Harbor, I regularly use this app to get a detailed forecast of the harbor and use it to plan the lessons for the day. However, the stations near the Oak Harbor Yacht Club and the harbor are no longer on the app. This app is still great, but I might need to find another forecasting app to plan my lessons with
Top app for Sailing, gents
Their Free data is good, but SailFlow’s Exclusive Pro data from their own private network of hundreds of incredibly well-located weather stations is worth 10X more per year than the cost of Pro membership. Go all in and get PRO, or I’ll smoke you on the race course ;)
Won't open in my iOS 9
First, after not using it for 6 months, it disappeared as an app from my phone. When I downloaded it from the cloud again, it only opens for 2 seconds, then disappears, reverting to the home screen. This happens each time I try to open it even after shutting the phone down and restarting. Deleted it and redownloaded-same thing. I don't want iOS 10 or 11 because I've got some old apps. It says it's supposed to work with 9 or higher.
Essential for sailors
Simply the best weather for boating app available. Really good at forecasting conditions for very specific locations. Worth paying a bit extra for the “plus”version, as it is slightly but consistently more accurate than the free forecast.
Rely on this app
I use this app all the time but in the last month it hasn’t been showing the radar anymore. It also crashes randomly. I love this app and rely on it and would love to see it fixed!
Love this app. Used it every day on a trip to the Bahamas. Quick and easy to see the prevailing wind flow, speeds and patterns. There may be a short cut, but the only draw back is switching from day to day by scrolling through each time frame.
Recently began to use SailFlow after using Underground Weather for a couple of years. Very user friendly and gives updated wind and tide information wherever you are sailing which is very useful. I will stay with SailFlow.
