It has been a vital part of understanding boat performance in Bermuda and the additional weather stations are a big step forward. It is surprising as to how much variation there is over the Great Sound, despit it being near land-locked, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and with little by the way of terrain to deflect the wind direction or affect the strength - Richard Gladwell 2014Predictwind - 2014
