Failure to do so can result in the vessel’s running aground or, just as embarrassing and damaging, snapping off a mast in a collision with a bridge or utility cable stretched across a tidal river. It is not possible to cover every detail of the subject of tides and currents within the constraints of this seminar, but it will certainly give the student a solid introduction to the subject. To learn more, we highly recommend boaters take the CPS-ECP courses, Boating 4: Near Shore Marine Navigation Level I and Boating 5: Near Shore Marine Navigation Level II. Tides and currents are covered more extensively in those courses.Read less
