Easiest thing to do is to look at the Tidal chart (ie map) for Buzzards Bay, Vineyard and Nantucket Sound. I don't have the 2013 version yet, but it starts on pg 66 in the 2012. Suspect its close.

Each chart shows the direction of the current and its speed and references a tide table for Pollack Rip Channel at the bottom of the page. For example, the first map is what will be going on when Flood starts at Pollack Rip. Just turn back a few pages and find the columns that say Flood starts for the day in question. There you go. The following chart pages are 1 hr later, then 2 hrs, etc.

Hope that made sense.
