Wind Guidelines - Te Whakaraupo 

 

 

These are guidelines for experienced steerers to assist in deciding whether to venture out in Te Waka Pounamu craft.

Consider the experience of everyone in your crew in the current conditions, alongside the wind gusts and average speed.  

Any wind approaching 10 -15 knots (18 – 25 km/h) should be approached with caution.  

Use lpc.co.nz for current wind conditions including gusts. Click on the ‘one minute wind’ in the drop down menu under Historical Weather Information and identify the gust history and pattern.
