Ah. Two possible reasons for that.
Firstly, I could give you a load of bull about this dust storm that came out of Alpha Centurae, swept around the moon thirteen trillion years ago and put it into a temporary wobble which distorted the tides for one day.
But secondly, it’s much more likely your watch is fast.

I'm with Keith-Belfield tide plotter for around a tenner- loadsa uk and europe ports - print out monthly tide tables or a graph for wherever you are are (and whatever you are onboard) without needing an internet connection for the laptop. The graph thingie is a neccesity for me cos when lo water is below 2.4m the water leaves the end of my launch ramp and it is then a vertical drop! I can print out any future date and see at what time too much water goes down the plughole. For ten quid its not worth muckin about
