The Virgin Kitesurfing Armada are delighted to have Windguru as a key partner for the forthcoming event. As part of the partnership, Windguru are providing two bespoke wind stations giving live wind readings  at the start and finish of the downwinder, which will be a huge help to all participants and organisers. Last week the Kitesurfing Armada team set both stations up at Hayling Island and Pagham and the readings have been coming through perfectly. Everyone can now view the new stations at: http://www.windguruspot.cz/?id=33 http://www.windguruspot.cz/?id=43

Vaclav Hornik of Windguru said, ‘ Our mission is to provide all wind addicts with service that help them to catch the wind, we are trying to make the best wind forecast and now we have another tool, the Windguru Station which measures the wind on the spot and make the real conditions available online to everyone. We are delighted to be a partner of the Armada, to promote this great event on Windguru and support it with two of these stations.’

Dan Charlish from the Kitesurfing Armada said, ‘It’s going to be a massive help having these stations when it comes to making the decisions about when to actually run the event, and also for monitoring the situation during the event as the wind changes. We used Windguru data last year so having them an official partner makes perfect sense. And a big thank you to the Inn on the Beach at Hayling and Pagham Yacht Club for hosting the stations, they are the perfect locations to get accurate readings for both spots – and it was great to send Lewis up on the roof of the pub to get it all fixed up!’
