Knowledge of the weather is as crucial to a sailor today as at any time in the past!
Advances in technology have put weather forecasting capabilities within the grasp of the average sailor. Consequently, with just a few clicks you can bring up tools drawing on the talents of the world’s most knowledgeable meteorologists. Tools unheard of 200 years ago.

Providing you with the knowledge necessary to interpret and use the vast array of resources available to you is the goal of Weather in a Modern World.
