Just found a new site. Has anyone used this one much, wonder how accurate it is?

Great news, Chris with Bimini Kiteboarding tells me there is a wind station on South Bimini accessible online at: http://southbiminihomeowners.com/weather/

I understand the wind sensor is mounted on a roof with no nearby obstructions so the data should be fairly reliable. Chris said they are working on adding a couple of livecams too, that will be great!

Hey Rick

Yes the wind station has no near by obstructions so it is very accurate in every wind direction.

I will keep you posted when the Live webcams go online. There will be 2 webcams, one that shows the ocean state and one that will show the sky to see when fronts are moving in for pilots that are flying to Bimini.

Stay tuned

Just came across some information on AUTEC or the Fresh Creek area on Andros at XWaters. The seem to have about 5 mph more wind over there than in SE Florida at times.

They also have information on an area I haven't been to before on Andros, Stafford Creek:

There is a site maintained by the Bahamas Meteo Service. Not sure how accurate it is. Seems there are no advanced marine forecasts, only public out three days.
