Portsmouth Tide Tables

Times of High & Low water for the week ahead at Portsmouth and other locations in the south coast are available - CLICK HERE to view.

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


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 2018.
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 25 March 2018 to 02:00 on 28 October 2018 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 2018 Cherbourg Tide Tables are now available and can be downloaded from the publishers, Adlard Coles:

Up the Creek - © Terry Paynter

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.

Up the Creek - South Coast

Up the Creek - Isle of Wight

Up the Creek - Channel Islands, Thames & Sheppey
