    A little more than 10 years of wind data measured at the height of 70 m above a small island has been used to estimate the wind speed at the expected 50 year return period. The finding is 32 m/s which is considerably smaller than the Danish wind code. Further reduction to ~ 27 m/s is obtained when the projection perpendicular to the projected bridge is considered.
