Discover Better Boating: Plenty of Weather Information at Finger Tips for Boaters (October 2014)

Oswego, NY, October 18, 2014 - In this edition of Discover Better Boating, which marks the sixth and final in the series' fourth season, we focus on all of the weather information boaters can find at your finger tips. Buoys and weather stations can provide important information to boaters, and The State University of New York's College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse University operates several in the area. Dave White, New York Sea Grant's coastal recreation and tourism specialist, is at Shackelton Point on the south shore of Oneida Lake with Mike Satchwell from the Great Lakes Research Consortium. "I see a lot of buoys and weather stations along the waterfront," said White. "What kind of information is available to me as a boater?" "GLRC operates and maintains five buoys and three weather stations in the Greater Central New York region," said Satchwell. "The data on these buoys is updates every 30 minutes and is available to anyone with internet access." See the full video clip for more on their discussion, which includes answers to the questions "What weather information is available 24/7?" and "Where/how do I get access?" In 2011, the Clean and Safe Boating campaign gained a little more acclaim when it became a May-October monthly "Discover Better Boating" segment that aired, and is still on a cable television system (Time Warner Cable) reaching 25 counties with approximately 550,000 viewers. The series is driven by NYSG and sponsored by the BIA of Upstate New York. The content, streamed directly through BIA's Web site, is responsible for an increase in off-season (November-April) vs. on-season (May-October) visitors, which have grown from an average of, respectively, 1,200 to more than 60,000 a month.
