Regarding the weather station in Adventdalen

23 August 2008

For those of you who are wondering what’s happening with the weather station at the old Aurora station in Adventdalen (the one that used to be online), here’s the story.

The old station is set up with Windows 95 and after the old PC collapsed UNIS hasn’t been able to replace it. The proposed solution is to replace the complete station with a new one that apparently would cost NOK 120,000. Unfortunately UNIS hasn’t got the money.

So instead the Sailing Club is looking into deploying light, cheap GPRS stations (NOK 5,000) sending data regularly to We’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Joris started baywatching yesterday and will be baywatching most days until the end of the month. When I went to the club yesterday evening he was in full activitiy cleaning up and fixing stuff. It’s a great feeling to see the club finally working the way it should always have 🙂 Cheers, Joris!

Joris will also be contacting the people who said at the meeting yesterday that they’d like to baywatch so we can keep the club open until mid September.

We’ll come back with opening hours hopefully during the day. All I can say for the moment is that it’s gonna be open both Saturday and Sunday.

See you on the water 🙂


YESSS, we’ve cleaned up the house!

14 August 2008

Moved the lockers and the tools to the boat room, checked the kayaks and the suits and CLEANED UP!!

Still a lot of work to do, especially mount racks for the paddles, build a storage system for the shoes and gloves and repair the suits, but we’re on the right track!

Thanks again to all the people who gave a hand this evening!!
