Tide times in Brundall - Oh learned ones

Recommended Posts

It's never really made much of a difference to me before but can anyone give me an idea of high tide times in Brundall compared to Gorleston? It doesn't have to be to the minute, but I was thinking 4 hours after would be a good bet?

Boat coming out on the 23rd and probably need to be near to high tide if I can. Below are the high tide times from the BA site so was thinking about 9:30am for high water in Brundall?

Ah ha - if I had continued scrolling down on the BA tide page I would have seen they quote 4hrs!!

Still appreciate if anyone can confirm this please?

Shorebase (which is my 'bible') says 3 hours and based on my experience with Swancraft I'd say that's the right one.

We are talking to Gorleston as in mouth of the Yare? Three hours?

Trust me Mark, when you're in the locks at Geldeston, you really don't care what the tide's doing.. hic..

 

edited to add... You're right Iain, I must have been in there to long to learn to read.

cheers Oh learned ones.

I am told they have a few hours either side of high water before it even makes a difference at the yard so 3 or 4 hours from the book time shouldn't be a problem.

If you know what height low water is at Yarmouth can you calculate what the bridge height would be at say Wroxham Bridge three and a half hours later?

Welcome aboard the good ship NBN,  David. 

Basically, no.

You need to look back at couple of months to see pages of posts on bridge heights and how to work them out.

Attached is a copy of an old Hamilton's guide tide chart, if you print 2 copies and cut one around the outer circle, the other around the inner circle, laminate both and fasten together through the centre you can calculate tides all over the system if you know the GHYS time.

Hello Martin, 

I use ours for working out passage through Yarmouth in conjunction with the Broads Tides table (this gives the low water height). 

They used to be on sale at Norfolk Marine but I have not seen them for years, so printing out your sample and laminating the disks could be of help to forum members.

Thank you for bringing up the use of the table again.

Regards

Alan

How about the NBN looking into the cost of making them and selling them in the shop :party:

Exactly what I did, trimmed it down a little and it fits into a plastic CD sleave.

I would think that someone still owns the copyright, so making them to sell or distribute would probably be illegal, even though they're maybe no longer available new.

I did the same as Martin for my own personal use when my original Hamilton's one started to get dog-eared.

The advantage of scanning and printing is that you can also scale them up into a large print version for tired old eyes.

They can make a useful wall feature in the cabin too, at about twice the size.....
