The sites above are recognised as good sources of information and Windguru has a Whitemere forecast with detailed windspeed information (in knots). If you have a favorite source of weather data let us know and we will add it to the list.

Weather forecasts are very important for sailors: a sunny day and a 10-15 mph wind and we are happy but at Whitemere the wind can be tricky and while summer Highs are associated with sunny days they often come with little wind. In the longer term the Climate Change modelers predict bigger Highs (no wind) and more intense Lows (too much wind) so we may have to get used to sailing at the two extremes!
