Setting your tide clock:
Remove the battery. Adjustment should be done in a clockwise direction only. Set time hands to correspond to the time of the previous high tide for the main Port then turn the tide-adjusting wheel only so that the blue hand is set to that Port. Using the time adjustment only, re-set clockwise to the current time, you will see that the tide hand will move accordingly. Replace the battery. For daylight saving, adjust the time then re-set the tide hand back to its original position.
NOTE: For more accurate readings please set the clock on the highest tide of the month (usually around a new or full moon).
