    Which is kinda laughable when they talk of high res modelling of the Hauraki Gulf.

    A quick google looks like they use their own in-house 'model' which sounds a bit like a mix of BoM's AXS & OCF models.
    There are also numerous references to EC and UKMet for high res analysis.

    It's a huge wank.

    $$$ for the formula one of sailing.

    Those guys spent their lives on that water.
    Far better than any computer model.
