Calculating the times of high and low tides for the next couple of years is now a lot easier following the launch of the 2009/2010 QuickTide cards.
These are slim cards which map various areas of coastline around the UK as well as overseas. On each card is a wheel, a colour-coded map of an area of coast and a chart which provides data for the next two years.
Just select the colour on the wheel that corresponds to the coast or tidal river that you are visiting, and then line it up with the date code. This will give you the times for low and high tide on that given day in that location.
The cards sell for £7.99 each.
