Weather & Webcam
BLAIRGOWRIE YACHT SQUADRON
This Webcam is intended for use by BYS members. BYS requires that it is used appropriately. When in use all other users accessing the page will see the same images. An additional icon may appear to indicate you are in a queue. If so you will not be able to gain camera control but will see the images being viewed by whoever has control. We thank Bendigo Bank for their generous support of this service.
The Camera from which these images are relayed is at the Southern end of the BYS Jetty. The BYS Jetty runs approximately North/South. The camera pans through a series of preset locations which in combination provide visual images of :
- Sea state
- Tide Height
- Tide state
- Cloud conditions
In sequence the images are :
Sea state and visibility west of BYS
Sea state and visibility north of BYS
Sea state and visibility east of BYS
Tide height at low landing of BYS jetty
Tide State – ebbing or flooding – at cone buoy BYS finish line
- An ebbing or outgoing tide has the buoy leaning to the left
- A flooding or incoming tide has the buoy leaning to the right
The camera pauses at each preset location for 30 seconds before panning to the next location, providing real-time images of prevailing conditions in the Blairgowrie area to complement data provided by the BYS weather station.
This service has been implemented using Grant Funds provided by Transport Safety Victoria (formerly Marine Safety Victoria).
