Terms and Conditions
Wind data are for guidance only, actual gusts and wave heights may be considerably higher than those shown.
Wind speed and wind direction information are expected average values for the surrounding surface. Due to small scale effects (topography, air/sea, etc.) there may be local variations. For a given wind force, sea conditions can be more dangerous near land than in the open waters. In many tidal waters wave heights are liable to increase considerably in a matter of minutes. The Beaufort values displayed in the wind charts are not representing absolute peak gusts, which can easily exceed twice the speed. The Beaufort values displayed in the wind- and the peak gusts charts are not maximal values, but values averaged over a 10 minute period.
