      The Westport Tidal information should appear when you enter the site, if you want information on another port, click on  Pocket size which is just below the main heading, then choose the port you want from the menu box

 

Claggan is approx 1.5 hours later than westport, If you have any difficulty in understanding the information, you can ask me.

Brief Explanation Of The Tides

 

   The gravitational pull of the moon and the sun controls the tides.When the moon and sun are aligned,their gravitational pull is combined.This causes Spring Tides.






Neap Tides occurs when the moon is at the quarters.When the moon is at the quarter the tide will move less water.
