Current Around the Netherlands ?


I'm just playing around with opencpn and I was wondering how I can see the current on the chart. Any who can help me out? I do see the tide graph.

OpenCPN does not contain a tidal data set for the Dutch coast. The best (and only??)free tidal data for the North Sea/Baltic/German Bight can be found on the site of the German Hydrographic Agency which provides a 3-day tidal current forecast in the form of a grib file.
They provide information how to unpack and install the files.
Have fun.
