PERTH 2011 WEATHER INFORMATION FOR ATHLETES
The Perth sailing community has access to details of local weather conditions off Fremantle from two weather stations set up for competitors in the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
A fully automated electronic weather station at the Royal Perth Yacht Club Annexe on Challenger Harbour, is set high atop one of the masts used by Australia II in winning the America's Cup in 1983.
The 25 metre mast houses equipment monitoring wind speed, direction, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and rainfall. It can be accessed here.
The second weather station records wind speed and direction from Fishrocks in the waters just south of Fremantle. This information is also available on the Perth2011 website's weather portal.
"This additional information on weather conditions off the Fremantle coast is not just a boon to the elite sailors who will be competing at the ISAF Sailing World Championships", Perth2011 Event Director John Longley says. "It's also of great benefit to local yachtsmen and boaties and will be one of the legacies from staging this prestigious international event."
The Perth2011 weather site also archives the readings from the RPYC Annexe and Fishrocks. (Data from RPYC Annexe dates from October 2010 to present. Data from Fish Rocks from 2008 to present)
