As a die-hard Baltic sailor, you usually know the topic of sailing in tidal waters from the one or other driving licence exam, but the theory usually cannot convey a real feeling for the opportunities and risks and above all for the relevant aspects, at least not to me.

What do you have to pay attention to when planning a route, where do you get the relevant information quickly and reliably and how do you take it into account appropriately: on the one hand already in the long-term planning, but on the other hand also in the short-term detailed routing on the water.
