Facts about Great Britain

Great Britain is a region with a rich nautical heritage. The English south coast in particular is home to countless quaint port towns with long, eventful histories. The strong winds and large tidal range of the English Channel present an exciting challenge to even the most experienced sailors.

Weather of Great Britain

The areas around the United Kingdom (especially England) are tidal waters. The skipper should have a sound knowledge of high and low tide times, expected water levels, currents and associated dangers. On so-called “Races” it is always necessary to watch out. At certain times, wind, currents and shallows create wave formations that can cause serious damage to a yacht.

Special notes

Depending on the cruising area, you will also have to deal with the sometimes very heavy commercial shipping. Here, many traffic separation areas (TSS) with the large and fast ships require special attention of the skipper and the entire charter crew.
