lunis Radio and Sfax Radio provide a good, although not always accurate forecast on SSB and this is probably the best for winds along the Tunisian coast. The National Broadcast Authority has a useful report on Radio Tunis Ch 2 (Chaine International) on medium wave. Also useful for obtaining information on winds out at sea arc the transmissions ol the Italian station Radio Due which arc retransmitted in Tunisia.

For rhc area of Gibraltar, including a 5-mile radius covering Northern Morocco, i;ood forecasts can be obtained from Gibraltar Radio throughout the day on FM92.6MHz and AM 145Ski 1/. Ihcsc stations can only be received if you arc in rhc immediate vicinity of Gibraltar.

Accurate forecasts can be obtained from the local harbour authorities.
