Wind under control with Microwind
Being partner and sponsor during an event like ORCi World Championship not only means increasing one’s own visibility through the presence of a promotional space in the core of Marina Dorica, but it also represents a service for competitors participating in the regattas, while improving their approach to the race.
A perfect example is set by Salona and Microwind service.
Connecting to http://mwind.it/ web site, it is possible to consult a weather report which gives you an update about the weather conditions expected during the day.
Moreover, in order to achieve a higher accuracy, it is possible to download the grib file: a weather format that sailboaters can load on boat instruments, in order to receive real time information regarding wind and wave’s evolution during regattas.
Besides, Salonna offers also the possibility to download the Microwind app for android systems. This app, based on google maps, gives real time updates, however concerning only the wind’s changes. Once the app has been installed, you will see a screen supplying instant geo-located information; moving forward or backward using the two arrows on the top, you will be able to move one hour forward or backward at each click.
In other words, it is a very useful service, for which we should thank Salona Performance Cruiser.
