New wind sensors in delta free great news for Sherman

Post by pointbucklerisland » Wed Jun 19, 2013 7:28 am

Two Islands directly upwind of Sherman Island have installed wind sensors. They update every 5 minutes. They are free and can been seen at http://www.pointbucklerisland.com
You must view in classic/desktop mode. Spinner Island is two miles upwind from Sherman and just across from Kiteopia . Point Buckler is 15 miles upwind in Grizzly Bay.

I wonder if these sensors are leading indicators of whether Sherman will come in?
The windmills farthest upwind at Sherman are windspeed variable, and you can often notice them pick up about 15 minutes before it comes in at Sherman.

Yes Spinner and Buckler will always get wind first. Directly upwind 4 miles and 14 miles. Pittsburg buoy and port Chicago are also ideal.
