Last week we looked at wind against tide which isn’t very relevant at Tammy but can be significant when sea sailing .
This got me thinking about what’s Called Passage Planning which I’ve occasionally come across on the Solent .
On club sailing weekends at Cowes National Sailing Centre this usually consisted of sailing with a following tide I.e. going East to Wooton Creek or West to Yarmouth .
On the occasion we went to Southampton we experienced really big wind against tide waves which were great fun.
Doing powerboat training exercises with the BBC Dive Club we would always plan our routes to avoid excessive wind against tide .
