Approved and recommended sites.
Live local weather
Windguru - windguru is not recommended because the free version is not as accurate as windfinder. i.e. lower resolution; 50km instead of 12km for windfinder, and lower frequency of update. The free higher resolution forecast on windguru has a 12 hour delay.
Due to the number of people sailing on non racing days, we have produced a complete set of tide tables. These are displayed at the Club by the sign-on sheets. Actual wind & tide at the pier head is also available on the Club LCD screen.
Update for the 2016 season
Note that the BBC weather site is now preferred over Windfinder. Weather forecast quality was tracked for both in 2015 and the BBC comes out on top.
