The best marine weather forecast systemRequest subscription
The result of a sports performance depends on three factors: technique, mental approach, and strategy.
The Meteomed Race Service was born from the need to consolidate strategic choices in the field of professional sailing regattas, through a scientific approach.
We support teams and committees by analysing the physical and environmental dynamics of the race context in order to develop a strategy.
Understanding the local features makes it possible to perfect the weather forecast and gain a complete overview of the physical phenomena that influence the race tactic.
Nowadays, technology in the field of forecasting is highly developed and in continuous evolution. However, the natural variables are numerous and it is difficult to insert them into a restricted package of mathematical calculations; each location has characteristics that could be defined as a microclimate and that cannot fall within the general models.
The assistance of an expert environmental analysis consultant in order to develop a race strategy, either on board or remotely, is not only useful for navigation choices, but also for the selection of sails with which to race, which to keep on board and which to keep at the ready in anticipation of a phenomenon and your competitors. This assistance represents a distinct advantage over your competitor, who will probably rely solely on his own racing experience.

To the previous features, we add the possibility of implementing race routeing (Weather Routeing). This service assists the onboard navigator, it is an instrument directly aimed at analysing the weather conditions along the route and aims to identify the ideal route with regard to the forecast conditions. For proper route management, there must be a fluid communication between the consultant and the crew members.
