SkySight - Weather forecast for glider pilots

We recently met Matthew Scutter on his European tour and spent some time with him in Germany and here in the UK. Matthew has been developing SkySight, a simple to use but very detailed 5+ day gliding weather forecast service which you can use on your PC, Mac, tablet or phone. We have been very impresased by it and have been using it to spot good days up to 5 days in advance to plan our work. This has allowed us to sneak off on the good days for a decent flight and still get all the work done!
