NEW BHA WEATHER STATION MONITOR AT BLAKENEY

We are very pleased to advise BHA Members that a new weather station monitor has been installed at Blakeney Quay, which monitors wind strength, wind direction, maximum gusts, temperature and other historical data.
The data from this weather station monitor can now be accessed live on the Internet from either of the following links:

https://holfuy.com/en/weather/730

https://www.windguru.cz/station/1327

The cost of this weather station monitor has been donated as part of the refurbished Fairway buoy and noticeboard on Blakeney Carnser, and erected by BHA volunteers. At the moment, with kind permission from Blakeney Sailing Club, the monitor is temporarily mounted on their flagpole in the Blakeney dinghy park. However, it will soon be relocated to a permanent position, possibly on a BHA beacon in the harbour.
