Low Bandwidth models for sailors?



  • Hi Windy Team. I'm based in NZ and have been watching your site since the beginning - love the higher accuracy ECMWF model which seems to work well over nearby ocean. I'm a sailor and seem to recall there used to be a 'low-bandwidth' option for downloading your data via Satellite phones, and this would become my main weather source offshore if I can download a v ery small bandwidth model. I have looked through menus and old posts and can't find much about this, can you point me at this please? Thanks!

    Hi @ck999, first of all, thank you for using Windy! While we appreciate your situation, it is no longer possible to download these data (GRIB files) via our app. Sorry about that! ~ Marie



  • Hi Marienka, is it still true that a low BW option does not exist from Windy as Predictwind has? We are starting to do long distance cruising and have been happily using Windy for day sailing in the Med. Any way to keep using Windy to get updates while offshore for days? Thanks, Phil
