Look at....

http://easytide.ukho.gov.uk/EASYTIDE...ictionLength=7

Shows tidal curves and read outs of low and high tides for next seven days.

Quite easy to use as long as you remember to add one hour of " daylight saving time ".......ie convert GMT to BST.

Easy Tide is free for seven days at a time.

Check with locals for " safe - sibbing " knowledge

Regards

Bern

Well!! I got to the beach at brean sands an hour before high tide ,, the beach was almost empty all but a couple of cars , set up my boat in tyhe usual way with an airbed pump running off my vans 240v inverter, it only took 15 minutes,,
I waited a while for the tide to come closer and started pulling the boat tward it .
Once in the sea and upto my waste i lifted the wheels and hopped on to start the motor and she started first time , but as soon i i chucked it into forward gear id got swept back to beach again and again , (it waas also a very windy day) after trying for half an hour to get out i gave in ,, i could not get forward enough to get weight onto the front and just kept getting washed ashore ,
Now for my first time at sea i found this very disheartening and damned hard work, i ached like a biatch the next day i can tell you .
As i said there was the odd person here and there and im sure i provided a lot of entertainment , so here i am feeling daft as a brush and a little wounded , i caught the flu too as i took as much water on as the boat .
