Bough Beech SC is thinking of putting in a weather station to show on the website live wind strength etc, but probably no camera. There seem to lots of brands out there. Any recommendations from clubs who have them?

At Carsington we use Skylink.
Link from website to see live conditions, 5-Day forecast and even historical (to confirm that the 'forum-30knots' was, indeed, just 12 LOL  )

We have a Vantage Vue by Davis Instruments. This then gets displayed on the club website via a Raspberry Pi with some open source weather station software on it.

You can also have multiple physical displays on it (so one in the bar, one in the galley).
