is a FREE weather website will always be 100% FREE... But running this website on a day-to-day basis costs me a lot of time and money.

As more and more people use PassageWeather, the costs of providing this service are growing and I'm having a hard time keeping up. The bandwidth and processing on the server has increased to the point where I have to upgrade the server again, and it's getting very expensive. Up until now I've been able to cover all server and bandwidth costs myself, but traffic has increased and it's getting harder to keep up with it.

I try to recoup some of my expenses by selling advertising space, which certainly helps, but it doesn't even come close to covering it all.

But YOU can help.

If you find PassageWeather useful, and you use it on a regular basis, please consider making a small donation. If not, there's always the chance that the expenses get too much for me, and I'll have to shut the whole thing down... and that would not be a good forecast.

Help support PassageWeather and allow me to continue to make this site freely available to all.

If you don't like online transactions, you can also make a donation by bank transfer. Just send me an email with your details (boat name, address, amount you'd like to donate, etc.) and I'll send you an invoice for "Weather Services" with our bank details on it.

Attention: Professional Yacht Captains

I know that there are many professional Yacht Captains out there using PassageWeather on a regular basis. If that sounds like you, please consider making a small donation.

Once you've donated (any amount, large or small), you'll receive a receipt that you can put in with your yacht's expense accounts.

Compared to the rest of your yacht's running expenses, this is just a small drop in the bucket, and all in the name of safety and seamanship.
