The Kaituna Bar Cam’s internet will be moving to fibre this month; this may result in a temporary outage that lasts as long as two days once it begins.
Please remember that it is the skipper’s responsibility to check the bar and decide whether it is safe to proceed or not. If in doubt, do not cross the bar.
Our Bar cameras are only one of the aids available to skippers to help them make the decision on whether it’s safe to cross a bar.
