Weather advice for first time jumpers
The weather has a bigger bearing on our sport than any other factor. Conditions that will stop ALL jumping are winds over about 25 miles per hour, and cloud below 2200 feet. Other wind and cloud conditions could affect your own jumping depending on what stage you are at in the sport and what kind of jumping you are doing.
A very close watch is kept on the weather during the day, and we will do everything in our power to get you jumped safely. We care and we really, really want you to jump, however, certain weather conditions are unsafe for jumping and it is in your interest if we stop jumping when these conditions exist.
If you are uncertain then a good idea is to telephone ON THE DAY to see what the weather is doing. The only thing that is certain with the British weather is that if you are not at Strathallan, then you will definitely not jump!!
We are open all year round, and each year the club does in excess of 7000 jumps. That averages out to around 130 descents per weekend. Certainly some weekends the weather can be cruel, but these figures should put into perspective the seemingly merciless British weather and convince you that patience will pay.
