Hi Res Tidal model - FREE for RTIR

Tactical racing oceanographic data specialist Tidetech is making its Solent and Isle of Wight tidal model available to all competitors in the JP Morgan Round the Island Race at no cost. 

The Solent and Isle of Wight model is a ground-breaking hydrodynamic model using over half a million individually-calculated points to describe the tidal flow in the Solent and around the Isle of Wight in incredible detail. The model operates at 100m resolution in 15-minute time steps and is constructed using the same technology as Tidetech’s model of San Francisco which is to be used in the 2013 Americas Cup. 

Tidetech’s models are available in GRIB format (used in conjunction with navigation software) and we have recently developed an image player allowing users to view the data online on a PC, IPad or Smartphone. Users can make a customised tidal atlas by selecting and downloading the images as a PDF for viewing offline and dinghy and sportsboat sailors (who might worry about their electronic gadgets taking a swim) can print and laminate their customised tidal atlas for taking afloat.
