Wind settings for sailors


  • Sailor

    @wxcycles
    It seems to me that I already used the Saffir Simpson scale on top of the Beaufort scale for my settings but with different colours.



  • @idefix37

    Almost, category 5 is missing, you must have overlooked it.

    @wxcycles
    I don’t think to have overlooked the Category 5.
    Winds in Category 5, which are stronger than 135 kt, are displayed in pink colour.

  • Ah, OK, I see now that you've left that range to display as a single color, I was looking for an upper bound value so it would shade the range.



  • BTW, I started to make a map like yours above but using the standardized colors beside this link's table for the sea states: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_scale

    What do you think of those colors? I'm thinking they'll look OK when shaded, but the boundaries may not be as distinct.

    You may try it. Personally I’m not convinced that sailors are so familiar with these standardised colours.
    I started with the following choice of colours:
    Green: the best conditions for sailing. Enjoy wind and sea.
    Orange: conditions becoming tougher. Be careful
    Red: hard conditions for a standard 30’ - 40’ cruising boat. Better to stay sheldered.
    The result is may be not artistic but efficient.
    I like to explain the Beaufort scale also with this table from F.Singleton, with a little humour :

  • I'll make a version of them and run them by you and maybe offer them as an alternative wind overlay with my Saffir-Simpson atop. I'll most likely need to eventually use a bit darker versions of these same webpage shades to get the contrast up per sea state change, my guess is the initial version will be a fairly subtle gradient. Which may be OK too.



  • Strongest yellow color defines the border of 7 to 8.

    The lightest orange shade is beginning of Sea State 8.

    The lower end needs some tweaking but 7 through 11 are good to go.

    Need to alter the Saffir-Simpson Cat 1 color to blend better but I like the Beaufort part so far.

  • These are very close to the colors within the Wiki Beaufort website table.

    (color boundaries are same as before)

    Nice pictures !



  • @idefix37

    I had to rework the Saffir-Simpson - this is close to finished.

    EDIT: I made the lightest parts a bit darker so the place names are easier to read.

    Try it out if you wish.
