Due to the number of people sailing on non racing days, we have produced a complete set of tide tables. These are displayed at the Club by the sign-on sheets. Actual wind & tide at the pier head is also available on the Club LCD screen.

Note that the BBC weather site is now preferred over Windfinder. Weather forecast quality was tracked for both in 2015 / 2016 and the BBC comes out on top.

Why it’s important to read the tide graph
