We are planing a one year trip to the caribbean and then back to UK, yet we are struggling to find wind charts that show wind patterns for each month.

Does any one know where to find some thing like this?

Your help is much appreciated

Jimmy Cornell published an Ocean Atlas showing the mean wind speed and direction for every month of the year in each of the world’s oceans. See noonsite review at http://www.noonsite.com/Noonsite/Members/val/R2012-01-19-3

Ocean routing charts are one of the best sources of information. You can purchase a routing chart for any ocean for any month of the year. I purchased Nov and Dec Atlantic routing charts (I think they were about £6 - £7 each) from Kelvin Hughes in Southampton before I did the ARC in 2010. They are compiled from thousands of observations over many years and not only give wind information, but ocean currents too.

There is a software package called Virtual Passage Planner II which has the worlds wind charts for each month included in it. This software is especially good for long ocean passages because it can profile your yacht's performance with the average winds and generate an expected passage plan. Excellent tool.

Cheers
