Tides and Current Display for the UK

Please can anyone help a 'newbie'?

I am trying to set up OpenCPN on my Nicholson 35, but am 'stuck' on obtaining the data (Harmonic.idx??) for the UK so that I can use 'otcurrent' plug-in.

Can anyone guide me to the correct location to download the required file?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Best wishes,

Allen

AllenCherry ...

You will not be able to use otcurrent_pi for UK waters. UKHO does not release the harmonic data.

Best bet is to use tidal gribs from the Marine Institute of Ireland.

But this is only for the English Channel and Irish Waters including the Irish Sea.

Sailing Weather Online has gribs for other UK waters.
