Low water Sunday is at 0000. It is advisable to allow 2hours before low water to be able to get away safely. You would not want to get stuck their all night.

It is possible. The route will take you across some fields along the edge of the medina. Then you will go over the Lock Gate at Island Harbour and continue along the track across fields. The weather is dry so therefore the ground will be nice and firm.

Sorry was not very clear. I was referring to UTC times. You should be OK at 11 pm, but would not leave it any longer

Tide Times.

According to Tide Plotter, high tide at Cowes is at 20.26 bst at 3.9m on Sunday, low water is at 01.36 and 1.4m.

Using Tide plotter, and looking for 2.2 meters, we have from 15.55 until 23.54.

Looking at the RYA/Admiralty chart for the medina, it looks as if the worst case is that it dries to 1.2m.

That gives us one metre of water to get out at midnight.

At 11.00 when it finishes, tide height should be 2.9 metres which gives us 2.9 minus 1.2 which is 1.7.

Can someone check my figures!
