Hi Tony – apologies for the long delay in getting this sorted out. Unfortunately the person who has kindly been dealing with it has been away working overseas a great deal and hasn’t been able to get it sorted out. At the General Committee Meeting last week another IT savy member of the committee very kindly agreed to donate a suitable computer tower and liaise with the relevant people about getting the necessary software loaded and connecting the whole thing up. Please bear with us but I really hope we will have the weather station back up and running soon. In the meantime we have linked to the Harbour weather station so that at least there is accurate harbour weather information for anyone wishing to decide whether to come down to sail or not.

Thank you Fiona for the Update, it seems to have been dragging on for a very long time, and sadly the Harbour Weather Station is worryingly inaccurate, especially for Weather and Tide !

Is there any news on Our Club Weather Station ?
A lot of people Rely on it for up to the minute information, and yet Another Month has gone by.
Is there any way we can get it working again soon please ?
Many Thanks
Tony

Hi Tony – thanks to a huge amount of work behind the scenes by Billy Button, Piers Lambert, Andy Taylor, our web people and Paul Mines, I am relieved and excited to be able to ask you to go and take a look at http://www.sailbrightlingsea.com/brightlingsea-live-weather/.
So sorry that it took so long to resolve but at last we have the weather info back on the site and I can also confirm that the wind strength and direction info in the hut for race officers is now also fully functional once again as that had experienced problems in the last few weeks too.
Please let me know if there are any issues with the info.
Thanks

Hi Fiona,
Thank you for the update, i’m sure Everyone will be pleased that our Weather Station is running again after so long, let’s hope it proves to be less problematic after such a Huge amount of work to get it working again.
Is there a problem with the Web cam now ?
Cheers

Webcam Sorted Tony. Only thing that is now slightly suspect is the weather forecast text that is displayed, but if you are online looking at the weather station, then met office website should be available to you. Still working on that bit.

Sad to see our Weather Station and Webcam both crash on Sunday, let’s hope it’s an easier Fix this time 🙂

Hi Fiona,
I was watching Both at the time, and they went down simultaneously, so I would assume it’s an electrical fault.

Hi Tony – turns out it was a power supply issue. Piers kindly went into the hut and got it sorted out for us so we are all up and running again.
