The RNLI in Redcar is helping local sailors stay safe with the help of a new weather station bought with the help of the Tees Offshore Community Benefit Fund.
The weather station connects to the internet through the Redcar charity's website and provides up-to-the-minute information on wind speed and direction. Together with a webcam which shows the sea conditions, the website is used by scores of sailors, windsurfers, fishermen, and the lifeboat crew itself, each day to see in real time what conditions are like.
The Tees offshore Community Benefit Fund is provided by EDF Energy Renewables who operate the Teesside Wind Farm off Redcar.
The grant application was made through the Tees Valley Community Foundation, who administer the fund on EDF's behalf.
The Redcar RNLI website can be found at www.redcarlifeboat.org.uk.
