All of a sudden you can see the wind speed, and if you put your mouse here,

it will say over here how many knots is blowing,

what the pressure is, what the direction is.

Over here if it's raining or not, and how much.

It's called motif time [INAUDIBLE].

Here for the past ten days, various hours.

We can step through that as we please.

So all this end road information that needed a lot of interpretation

has become usable by a computer.

Today we live in the age of computers.

So we need that kind of information to make calculations.

And assumptions and predictions for our strategy.

So what is available on this famous grid format?

Well first of all there are plenty of different models.

Alright.

A higher resolution model.

That's a high resolution model.

This is a high resolution model of the United States here.

High resolution means the calculations are done at a smaller scale,

taking into account smaller scale of things like sea breezes,

but even like mountains, headlands.

All that sort of stuff.

What kind of variables are available?

Hundreds.

Literally hundreds of variables are available.

Ultraviolet radiation.

All kinds of stuff.

On lots of different levels.

As I've said, your only interest in the bottom thirty meters of the atmosphere.

That's where we're sailing, that's where we live in, right?

Meteorologists are interested in the atmosphere to 11 kilometers.

Plains, or all kinds of stuff, right?

So, we're only interested in the boat.
