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: http://www.ntslf.org/data/realtime?port=Portsmouth

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 2014.
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 30 March 2014 to 02:00 on 26 October 2014 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 2014 Cherbourg Tide Tables can be downloaded from the publishers Adlard Coles at: http://media.bloomsbury.com/rep/files/cherbourg-tide-card-2014.pdf
