Station Situation

Calshot Wendy station is on the highest part of Calshot Activity Centre, next to the well-known premises of Solent Sailboards, (where there is a screen display of the weather). The station is used primarily by sailors and windsurfers. For detailed location, see the linked map.|OS Grid ref: SU479012|Altitude: ft (m)

Interpreting Readings

There is no particular wind direction that is critical to the general use of the station, but it is most use in onshore winds, ranging from SE through S to SW, where it seems to read fairly accurately. The station is some 60ft AMSL, (and also ground level!) - and thus reads out the winds that will be experienced out on open water nearby. (Winds on the beach will be a bit lower than the station reads out.) It reads out in Knots and Beaufort Force, rather than in MPH, like all our coastal stations. This is because most sea and beach users are happier with those readings. more...
