UPDATE: We’ve had a very kind offer from a club member to pay for the weather station, so we’re stopping the crowdfunding process. Thanks to those who have already offered.

Help fund a new weather station at the sailing club…

We’re looking to install a new weather station at the sailing club, which will allow us to display the weather on our website and also feed the data to Weather Underground so you can pick it up on their app. We identified two versions that are standalone units that don’t need a computer to process the data and upload it.

The cheaper version does not have a display that we can put up at the club, so you’d still need your phone/tablet/laptop to be able to check the weather. The dearer option comes with a display we can put up at the club.

To fund the purchase we’re running it as a crowdfunding system and are offering, for a small donation, to put your name and hyperlink to a website of your choice in exchange for a donation towards the purchase of the weather station and mounting bracket.

The weather station options

Depending on how much we raise before the deadline will depend on which weather station we purchase.

The weather station without display is £139 – https://amzn.to/2JxUTH2
The weather station with display is £229 – https://amzn.to/2JuKGed
The mounting bracket is £5 – https://amzn.to/2y3l7LZ

Your donation

We’ll be closing the crowdfunding on Saturday 21 July, or when enough pledges have been received to cover the cost of installing a weather station, whichever is sooner.
