Sugarloaf Wind

The correct address for the Sugarloaf wind meter is wind.dist.ro
The link on this website under weather is not currently directing you to this address.
For those who don't know... this wind meter is situated at the top of the TV tower on Sugarloaf.
It is maintained by The NZ Metservice for their metflight service.
The website is kindly maintained and hosted by Neil, a local RC enthusiast.
It is at 2000' above sea level. The wind speed in knots (double it for km/hr) and direction is updated at 11 mins past the hour and graphed.
An excellent way to get an idea of the port hills wind we actually fly in.
Happy landings

Great, thanks Rod. We were

Great, thanks Rod. We were wondering what happened. This is a really useful resource for us all. Hopefully Steve O'S can update the link from the club website (when he gets back from holiday). Cheers
