Re: sailing as i write

HHello all. Bit of a slow going today. I really need to learn these tides better. Im anchored right off the dreaded san pablo right now. Im planning on trying to leave at first light to ride the incoming tide down so when i get near st augastine and the tide starts going out hoppefully ill be able to ride that as well. Because motoring for hours at 2the or 1a mph sucks. Made good time until tide changed.

I have no internet access at anchor i am using my phone. Can someone please help a poor solo sailor out and tell me if im right about tmmrws tide being low around 630 am meaning i can ride the incoming tide through the san pablo? I CANNOT make that bridge on an ebb tide. I have to run it at slack or flow and i dont want to lose a lot of time. I have 37to miles to motor tmmrw averaging 3 to 4the mph so please help and in this case treat me like i am stupid when you explain the answer. Babarney style please! This is my only obstacle until ponce inlet
