With less than one week to go to the start of the 80th Round the Island race, we take a look at the tidal issues that you will face come the day. These new tidal animations have been produced by tidal experts Tidetech and based on the company’s new and detailed study of the current around this notorious race course. Here, you can run the animations for each section of the course and download them to your laptop or smartphone. In the July issue of YW we take a look at what makes Tidetech’s approach so different while Tidetech’s Penny Haire describes some of the likely tidal scenarios that you may face. By registering with Tidetech online you can also build your own step by step tidal atlas for the race for free. GRIB files can also be downloaded here.
