1 The water level, updated every 4 hours, is calculated as the difference between Brittania's 57.9 m datum and the latest value in the Environment Canada Weather Office's Data File for Brittania.
Note to racers: The BYC gates must remain in place until the water level drops below ~59.0m, or less than 1.1m above datum.
2 The NSC wind data, updated every 10 minutes, is collected from a weather station in the NSC yard. Sensor out of order is displayed whenever no new data is recorded over the past half-hour.
3 The current and forecast values are extracted every 10 minutes from the Ottawa (Kanata - Orléans) City Page. Wind speeds are converted to knots (kn), and distances to nautical miles (nm).
ISO Abbreviations: kn stands for knot(s), where 1 kn = 1.85 km/h, and nm stands for nautical mile(s) where 1nm = 1.85 km.
