This service allows you to choose the area of interest along the coast, or in alpine areas, and to choose how often the alert is sent to you and most importantly, what wind threshold you believe is important to you. In this way, you can customize the alert to be of most use to you. This email service does not replace the official forecast and Roads and Maritime Services strongly recommends all skippers keep a close eye on the official weather.
