I will pass through the Pentland firth (Pf) from E to W this summer, after a vacation
So, I Am educating myself on tidal conditions through the Pf and am, in my opinion, at a conundrum.
" Duncansby Race
At (-0500 HW Dover) the race
forms WNW off Duncansby Head
coincident with the beginning of the SE-going tidal stream, and extends initially ENE but wheels gradually anti-clockwise. Turbulence is experienced off Duncansby Head
throughout the period of the SE-going stream." (Courtesy Caithness CWS - Pentland Firth - Tides

Scroll to bottom of page.
I assume "DR" in the image is an abbreviation for Duncansby race, but then the location of DR is in error according to the text.
Is the image in error?
