Webcams

Isn’t it nice to be able to sit in front of your computer in the warmth and comfort of your own home and have a “live” look at the weather and views of your favourite RIBing locations?
Is it worth going out today?
Shall we go to A or B?
Below, for example, is a live webcam mounted at Staddon Heights, high above Plymouth Sound, looking west towards Cornwall.

And below is a view from the Harbour Masters office in Torquay across Torbay and to the west.

Can any of our friends in Greece, Portugal, USA etc. point us towards any webcams of interest? Especially any that might remind us of what the sun looks like now that we in the UK won't be seeing it again for at least another 6 months!!

You can have a look at anywhere in the world via most harbour webcams. I cannot rember the website off hand but I will contact you latter. Alternativly you could get a Raymarine demo CD and see actual weathering anywhere in the world via the internet.
Visit www.Raymarine.com

Thanks for that. Have requested CD.

I had also hoped that some members would helpfully post up one or two webcam sites (perhaps even in exotic locations such as above Banana Beach on Skiathos-Michael?) so we could all file them under "Favourites" and have a dekko whenever we felt that Britain's winter was getting to us.

Anyone???

I am not aware of web cameras being installed on such places. I sure know some links for web cameras installed on ski resorts, but I am sure that this is not of your interst. Anyways these links are in the favorites of my office's pc. I' ll try to remember look for them tommorow. Maybe I' ll find something new.

P.S. For the moment try this onehttp://www.astronet.gr/cameras/
