"I wanted to let you know that I was able to use Model Accuracy to good effect on navigation/tactical decision making in two specific moments throughout the PV (Puerto Vallarta)  Race. The first was off of Mag Bay, in the beginnings of what felt like a better established gradient breeze than I was seeing in the model runs, and the second was in the final 50 miles of racetrack, in dismissing a more significant forecast land affect with islands to the north of us. It was also nice to confirm that the GFS overall was looking most accurate once we were on the course, as going into the event and comparing to real time data, that appeared to be the case. The interface between instinct and quantified perspective is really cool..."                                     -Justin Shaffer - professional navigator/sailor

“Model Accuracy is simply the best tool available today for real time weather model validation during an offshore race. When bandwidth is small and data access is limited,  knowing which weather model is performing the best is an invaluable piece of information. Pouring through model after model trying to decipher what is accurate and what is not can take hours and become increasingly frustrating as exhaustion sets in during a long offshore race. Having this information available graphically in an easy to manage interface removes a lot of the stress of the situation and gives the navigator more confidence, all while aiding to lower satellite internet costs.” - Anderson Reggio

“Onboard RIO100 the use of Model Accuracy made decision making easier and allowed me to focus my attention on the best performing weather files. Being able to look at the trends of different GRIBs and there accuracies in the middle of the Pacific Ocean was crucial to helping us win the Barn Door Trophy in the 2015 TransPac.” – Chris Branning

“Model Accuracy results are most important for me in determining which model is performing best at any time during an event without my having to devote the same concentration and time that was formerly necessary to arrive at a conclusion in which I had less confidence. As I use it more I feel increasingly confident with its summary data and with my evaluations of different models based on that data and with my routing recommendations that are significantly influenced by those evaluations.” - Joe Goulet
