Many members will have noticed that as well as discontinuing the SMS forecast service, there are now no Marinecall telephone or telefax services. It is still possible to speak to a Met Office forecaster, . There is also an independent forecast service, see the Weatherweb site.
Given the availability of on-line weather services suitable for downloading to Smartphone, Tablet or laptop PC, the loss of these services will not be a great problem for many. They have been discontinued because of lack of use.
Depending on your sailing area, there are many links to marine weather forecasts on MyCA with links at the bottom of the Weather Resources page. Alternatively, see similar pages at Frank Singleton’s site.
