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, 1999.
    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.
