High tides 9th - 11th September

Anyone else know about the predicted tides for this period?

I've just read that they are due to be the highest tides for 20 years.

Yep Radio was saying how there is huge worries for the flooding that is predicted.

Huge opportunity to go exploring up the rivers then.

its always higher in March and Sept, but can be exceptional if the planets are in alignment (more that usual) ++ other things like low pressure

will be interesting to see

Simon, on the Costal/yachtmaster course you do go into detail,,,,i actually did my instructor having to teach this, so i have some charts if you are interested, just send me an email address, i find if quite interesting, one bulge is due to the plants+sun, but the other bulge is due to centrifugal force of the earth....not everybody knows that

The Isle of Man's Met Office fears record spring tides could lead to parts of the island flooding this autumn.

At 0050 BST on 9 September and 0130 BST on 10 September, tides will reach a height of between 7.9 and 8 metres.

Think I will move the car to higher ground and go to work in the rib

If we get 8 Mts then Jersey and Guernsey will be no more. is it time to order your Prosport Ark

Massive tides at Conwy on those two days - an 8.7 m range


The tide will be racing through the Conwy Estuary and the Meni Straits good job its the middle of the night and I won't be out!!

Probably get about 5 -7 kts of tide running up the Conwy River!!

aargh-10.64m high here early morning on the sunday.
Down to 0.13 low on the previous day
Get a good southerly behind that and Morecambe bay will expand it boundaries somewhat! Probably into my lounge
Still them lobsters better hide around low water!

Send a message via MSN to AndyB007
UKHO Easy Tide gives you up to seven days for free, 14 days if you want to pay for it (£1.00 per prediction or 15 predictions for £10).

C'mon dig deep -Belfield tide plotter about £12 or thereabouts. We use the graph to see months in advance when the water will leave the end of the slipway on certain tides and you can print out in tide table format as well. It covers loadsa UK and european ports so you can sort your tides in advance of a cruise.

can't you get a local tide table book in your local newsagent for about a quid . Iam sure I bought one in Scotland in the past .
They seem to be available everywhere I have been in the country . ?

Mdt - the guys are right about half the cost of a pint of guiness you can pick up tide table at Bosuns Locker... even I am not that tight! ...does your plotter not do tables? My GPS claims it would if I bought some charts for it.
