1999 San Diego Crew Classic Tidal Information
This is the tidal information for the two days of racing in San Diego on March 27-28,
On Saturday, the tide was high at 6:2 a.m. (5.2 feet) and low at 12:58
p.m. (-0.6feet). This means all crews which raced between 7:00 am and 1:00 pm raced
against the tide. After 1:00 pm, crews raced with the tide for the rest of the day.
On Sunday high tide was at 7:00 am (5.4 feet) and low at 1:35 pm (-0.6
feet). This means all crews which raced between 7:00 am and 1:30 pm raced against the
tide. After 1:00 pm, crews raced with the tide for the rest of the day.
On Sunday wind conditions were a significant factor after 10:30 am,
with the wind blowing from portside to starboardside, as a cross headwind against the
crews from lane 1 ( the favored lane) toward lane 6 ( the disfavored lane). Rowing
conditions deteriorated progressively and rapidly going from lane 1 to lane 6. For the
early Sunday races (i.e. before 10:30 am) the wind was not a significant factor, and
before 9:00 am, there was no wind, with millpond conditions for those early races.
