Harrison Windsports Society

A site for windsurfers and kiteboarders that sail at Harrison Lake, BC, Canada

Harrison Windsports Society wind meter

Thanks to the combined efforts of Luk, Alex, Mark, myself, and others we now have our new wind-meter mounted and working on top of the Harrison Hotel roof.

Thanks to the Harrison Hotel for allowing us to put it there and supplying the Internet connection.

Our website displays wind measurements from 10 am to 8 pm (summer hours).

The wind speeds should be very accurate.

We may tweak the direction readings a bit to reflect the wind in the center of Harrison Lake, it seems to be reading a bit east right now, which may be due to the wind fanning out after passing through Harrison. That is something we notice when sailing also.

The two graphs at the bottom attempt to give an indication of the abruptness or ‘punch’ of the wind gusts. If you have any suggestions for better ways of calculating and representing the wind ‘punch’, let me know.

Click on the ‘Wind Graph’ tab above to see the graphs, but first, check out this nice photo that Luk took of the wind meter mounted on the hotel:
