It’s important to check the weather conditions before you set sail, as the weather can quickly turn, and the ‘sunny’ day you envisaged can turn into a storm in a matter of hours! There’s so many ways to find out the weather, that there really is no excuse for not knowing the weather – here’s our favourite places to check out the weather
Monitoring, forecasting and information system for the Greek seas
Everyday life and business practice are closely related to the sea in many countries. This is especially true in Greece with more than 16,000 Km of coastline. In such conditions timely and reliable information and forecast on the condition of the seas is of strategic importance. For over a decade now POSEIDON system operation covers exactly this need.
WindGURU is a service specialized in forecasting weather
Forecasts are based on data produced by weather forecast models. Windguru is able to provide forecasts for any place on planet Earth. The main reason to create this site was the idea to get the forecasts quickly and easily without wild clicking the mouse while searching for meteomaps throughout the internet.
Forecasts for a total of about 500 areas and cities of our country and 700 beaches
The initial conditions (Global model) used by our models are provided by the National Weather Service of the United States. Based on these, our models (BOLAM, WRF) scan the Greek territory and create, after many hours of mathematical processing by a computer array of our Institute, the local forecasts. These then feed our node and through the visualization process create the pages you see on this node. The goal of our node from the beginning was the usability and understanding of the forecasts by the general public without, however, making any simplifications of the type "minimum / maximum temperature of the day" which we believe do not provide essential information to the public.
Our goal is to provide the best weather forecasting service in the world.
The uniqueness of Windy lies in the fact that it brings you better quality information than the other weather apps’ pro-features, while our product is absolutely free and even without ads.
Powerful, smooth and fluid presentation makes weather forecasting a real pleasure!.
" This was the best vacation we have ever had. We were met by Vasilis and his father who were both extremely professional and service oriented. Even before we had access to “our” boat, we were helped with a ride to a shop to gather provisions for our week-long sailing. We got a good walkthrough of the catamaran Tiny K. We also recived tips on travel routes and port visits. The boat Tiny K was extremely nice, clean and well equipped with the latest electronics, navigation equipment and fine sails. During the trip we had some questions that we asked via sms and we got quick, clear and helpful answers. We had a wonderful week on Tiny K and Prima Yachting and we Vasilis contributed greatly to this experience. We highly recommend Prima Yachting and Vasilis to anyone who wants to have a fantastic sailing vacation in the waters around Athens. We will return to Prima Yachting and Vasilis for more sailing holidays. "- Sweden Oct 2019 -
"I am a professional skipper across Europe and the Caribbean and chartered Sea Force Jeanneau 54 for a flotilla in September 2018. The contact with Vasilis and all the base crew was very friendly, and everything was done to accommodate us very well. Check in and checkout were both very smooth. Also the boat was marvelous, in great condition and very well equipped and maintained. Whenever I have the choice I will go for Prima Yachts and look forward to working with Vasilis again!

" Von der Übernahme der Yacht bis zur Übergabe war alles perfekt. Das Boot war in einem hervorragenden Zustand, sehr sauber und gepflegt und vom Segelequipment über Handtücher bis zur Kücheneinrichtung sehr gut und hochwertig ausgestattet. Man wird vom Team sehr erfecter empfangen, im Boot wartete zur Begrüßung Wein, Olivenöl und ein riesiger Obstkorb auf uns. Sowohl die Übergabe als auch die Übernahme erfolgt sehr professionell und gründlich. Selbst kleine Gefälligkeiten außer der Reihe (z.B. Klebeband zur Reparatur von beschädigtem Reisegepäck usw.) wurden umgehend erledigt. Macht weiter so! Wir kommen gerne wieder. Herzliche Grüße die Crew der “Whisper”.- Dresden, Germany Oct 2020 -
