New club anemometer

New anemometer

The club has a new anemometer which replaces the long-serving but increasingly decrepit old one. A key feature of the new one is that it is bluetooth enabled so you can download an app to your Android or Apple smart phone and see what the wind is doing from anywhere within a 50+ metre radius of the clubhouse.

App details and instructions are on the website on the club anemometer page.

Unfortunately the new base station in the club house (an Android tablet with the app installed) is experiencing a few teething problems but should be fixed in the next couple of weeks.

Interesting fact: the spiral rope around the anemometer pole is an "anti-eddy" measure - to ward off troublesome eddies...
