The Board of Directors welcomes input on events to celebrate this important occasion. Please send ideas to email@example.com.
CYC HAS A REAL-TIME WEATHER STATION
Thanks to a partnership between CYC and the Climate Lab at the University of PEI, you can see real-time weather information from sensors placed in our marina.
The climate station was installed at the CYC in August 2021 by the UPEI Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation, as part of a three-year project funded by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. The station provides air and water temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall, solar radiation, and water level measurements every five minutes, and will be used in various climate research and modelling projects of the Climate Centre. The data are available publically to all at the link, and the Climate Centre hopes that the station will be useful in the planning and operations of the CYC and to its members.
