Have you noticed this Icon below on this page?  

After we initially set up the "near real-time weather" link a few years ago, it quit working and we removed all references to it on this page.
For what ever reason, the instruments went dead and we kept checking on them from time to time. Imagine our delight a few months ago when we found the station alive again! The display that you see is reading live weather instruments on a personal weather station in Port Charlotte. As near as we can tell, the station is in Murdock and is located at a private residence about a mile or so North of the Harbor.  Being that it's not actually located at the water's edge, the readout is not an accurate indication of conditions on the harbor. It does provide a reasonable estimates of conditions trending on our harbor. Enjoy.

Editor's note -   This link below...

provides a readout from instruments at Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club.
The readings seem to be inaccurate when the wind is from the North.
The Sailflow page provides a lot of other interesting information.

being interviewed by Wink TV News

There is a world-class sailing regatta coming to Southwest Florida. The Charlotte Harbor Community Sailing Center just announced they won a bid to host the "F-18 Americas."

A harbor must have certain elements to be eligible to host such an event: open water, deep water, a good breeze and no hills blocking that breeze. "We were one of the top 10 harbors to sail in," said sailor, Dennis Peck, "That's the reason I moved here in 1970.

Sailing with Jimmy Buffett

This is a video of Jimmy Buffett sailing a Morris 36 with his hit "Son of a Sailor" as musical background. Please do click the lower right hand corner full screen button to really enjoy it. Use the "Esc" key to exit full screen mode. You wouldn't believe the amount of code reverse engineering we did on another website to construct the code to make it work on this website. It's not a youtube video. ( note - we didn't use the word 'hacking"  right? )  We hope you enjoy the sailing escape.

Sleek 'super yacht' owned by high-tech
billionaire sails into Charleston

A sleek new racing yacht owned by a billionaire Internet pioneer slipped into Charleston this week, the latest leg in an excursion that will take it halfway around the world. The Comanche was tied up Thursday at the privately owned Seabreeze Marina on the peninsula, just north of the State Ports Authority's Columbus Street Terminal. The mostly black 100-foot-long monohull with red highlights was built in New England over the past year for Jim Clark, the co-founder of Netscape. aJim Clark's 100-foot monohull Comanche will compete in the 630-mile Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, which gets underway Dec. 26 in Australia.
