Light weight Gribs:

Minimal openWRF Gribs can be delivered using the saildocs.com email delivery system for the bandwidth impaired. All of the openWRF Gribs have a minimal version that includes only wind at 10m and height of significant waves. The resulting Grib files are about 25% the volume of the original Gribs.

All are less than 500,000 bytes which is the sailmail.com system maximum size for email attachments. Several of the files have slightly shorter forecast times to maintain their size within the size limit.
