burgee Portsmouth Tide Tables

Hourly heights of tide at Portsmouth and seven other locations in the Solent are available here - CLICK HERE to download a copy

Portsmouth Tide Gauge readings showing actual and predicted times can be seen at the National Tidal & Sea Level Facility POL website:

burgee Cherbourg Tide Tables

For those Members who are using the Reeve-Fowkes Tidal Atlas for the Central Channel - these tables give times and heights of high water Cherbourg for 2015.
Note: The times shown in the table are shown in Time Zone -0100 which is one hour ahead of UTC (Coordinated Universal Time - formerly known as GMT).  British Summer Time (BST) is also one hour ahead of UTC. When cruising in home waters during the period from 01:00 on 29 March 2015 to 02:00 on 25 October 2015 inclusive the time read from these tables will be the same as clock time in the UK. Outside these dates the times read from these tables will need to have one hour subtracted to equal UTC.

Copies of the 2015 Cherbourg Tide Tables are now availabe can be downloaded from the publishers Adlard Coles or CLICK HERE to download a pdf copy.

burgee Up the Creek

Past issues of the YOSC Newsletter featured a series of articles by Terry Paynter of his experiences in visiting some of the lesser known anchorages, creeks and harbours around the Solent, Isle of Wight and Poole Harbour plus a few further afield.

The details should be tempered with caution due to the passage of time since the articles were written. Current almanacs and charts should be consulted if in doubt but the notes should give some useful guidance.
