- Swansea to Cardiff
- Distance about 40Nm
- Swansea LW 1000,
Cardiff HW 1645. Half spring
- Aim to leave Swansea
about two hours before low water. Tides in Swansea Bay are not
strong so it should take about 2 hrs to reach West Scar cardinal.
- From here you will pick
up an increasing flood tide and should easily make Cardiff on
a rising tide about an hour before HW.
- Depending on the weather
and sea conditions you might want to stand about a mile off Nash
Point to avoid the overfalls.
- Call the Cardiff Lock
(Barrage Control CH 18) from the Outer Wrack Cardinal. Lock in
times are 15 and 45 mins past the hour.
- Have fenders and lines
prepared port and starboard for the lock.
