As a user-centred graphic designer I make things that strive to be both attractive and useful, easily incorporated into our daily habits. There are many tidal apps but they don’t visually remind us on a daily basis what the sea is doing. This hand-designed chart is created to be placed in a spot you will see it every day, wherever you find your eyes relaxing and wandering: next to your kitchen table, on the fridge, a cupboard door, on your desk, by the front door, or even next to your toilet! Placed in the right spot you will really get to know the sea and the rhythm of it’s love of the moon, every day.
This chart can be used for all locations along the North West Cornish Coast. Times and Heights are based on Newquay. Heights are above Chart Datum*. As a general rule, tide times are earlier in the west and later in the east, but they also vary depending on coastline bathymetry and topography. All locations follow the exact same Spring and Neap patterns:
– St Ives, Carbis Bay, Hayle, Gwithian, Godrevy, Portreath, St Agnes and Perranporth tide times are on average about 2-4 minutes before Newquay.
– Crantock, Porth, Mawgan Porth, Trevose Head and Port Isaac are broadly the same as Newquay.
– Padstow and Rock tide times are about 10-12 minutes on average later than Newquay.
– Tintagel tide times are about 20 minutes after Newquay.
– Boscastle tide times are about 40 minutes after Newquay.
*Chart Datum is the lowest local tide level due to astronomical effects, and excluding meteorological effects.
