Tides – Calculating the correct hour

Being able to correctly calculate the tide is a critical skill for any skipper / crew – this Virtual Training session takes you through the process of selecting the right standard port tide table in the almanac, interpreting the HW/LW data, drawing your tidal sawtooth diagram, calculating the correct hour to use for your tidal vector and interpreting the tidal diamond/atlas.

During the COVID-19 Lock-down (April -June 2020) our Chief Instructor Kath Scott delivered over 20 free virtual training sessions on a range of boating topics. You can see the full range on our YouTube channel HERE
