On the east coast the vast majority of beaches are greatly affected by tide with three notable exceptions Killiney Beach, 40 foot & Capstains Skerries, all of which you can get a swim on pretty much anytime. Claremount Beach in Howth is very tidal.
Knowing how tides work allow us to plan good timings for the boat launch, laying lines and anchors for buoys and plan training sessions for example you are more likely to run when the beach isn’t full of water, or more likely skim-board when the tide is at its lowest ebb on Claremount.
Everything you need to know about tides is contained in our tide section, take a look and see if you can answer the following three questions
How do I get the tide times for Dublin?
What does tidal height mean?
What is the rule of twelfths?
Dublin tide timetables available for all members at the door on Sunday.
