Claymore's tide thingy.

OK, I give in, where can I find Claymore's tidal gate guide/summary? I can't find it in a forum search or in the downloads/articles.

I think it was on Claymore's blog, which may, or may not, still exist somewhere. The data below is extracted from his table - the forum doesn't do columns I'm afraid:


Tidal Gates HW HW
Oban Dover

Dorus Mor
West Going Stream Commences 3.3 -1.5
East Going Stream Commences -2.15 4.55

Sound of Luing
West Going Stream Commences 4.3 -0.5
East Going Stream Commences -1.55 5.15

Cuan Sound
West Going Stream Commences 4.2 -1
East Going Stream Commences -2 5.1

Corryvreckan
West Going Stream Commences 4.1 -1.1
East Going Stream Commences -2.1 5

Yup, thanks for that too. Gates, why didn't I think of that?
OH, I did, why didn't my search find it then? Puters, who would have them?

I'll have to try that in future, I usually use the search facility on the web site I'm on, I have seen it said before that using Google gives better results.

Googling "Claymore's tidal gate " the YBW thread comes out top.

On BM I looked at the first 3 pages of results before I gave up.

In Yorkshire, and Lancashire, a pint is beer, if he wants a tot to go with it I'm sure we could run to that.
