Welcome to YachtGOOS

A Recreational, Global, Ocean Observing System representing the aspirations of hundreds of yachts-men and women.


Enabling real – time automated monitoring of the marine environment. Covering diverse regions of the coastal and open ocean, and leading the way in both technology and environmental policy.


Using mesh network communications, data will be received automatically by the yachtGOOS central server, and thence to oceanographic data servers.


Science students and researchers will analyse and interpret the data producing an added value product for improved weather forecasting, satellite data assimilation, marine ecosystem forecasting and coastal and fisheries management.
