Calculating slack water in the Corryvreckan

2012-07-07T23:29:01.807-07:00

I am currently writing a sea kayaking guidebook book for Pesda Press "Argyll and the South West, Ardnamuchan to the Solway Firth by Sea Kayak. (ISBN 978-1-906095). This is one of the most complex areas of the UK coastline and I am determined that it will be a piece of work which is thoroughly researched, both in terms of previously published information and also of first hand experience.I think I am pushing the good will of Franco, the publisher, but I do not want to rush a guide based on my experience of a piece of coastline on one trip, one way, in one set of weather conditions. The Corryvreckan is an example of a serious bit of coast, a key point in the planning of any voyage in these parts. If you click the Corryvreckan tag link on the right, you will discover that we have passed through this Gulf E/W both ways, along both coasts, crossed it N/S both ways, at a variety of states of tide and in a variety of wind and swell conditions. We have camped on both its north and south shores and climbed into the hills of Scarba and Jura to photograph the various eddies and over falls.For those of you who are interested in such a sea kayaking guide, I appreciate your patience, thank you.According to published data, in the Corryvreckan, the west going flood starts at -0100 Dover springs and -0015 at neaps. The east going ebb starts at +0515 Dover springs and +0600 at neaps, a time difference of about 6.5 minutes per day between springs and neaps.On the 16th October 2009 it was 2 days after springs, HW Dover occurred at 1025 and 2256, so the slack between the east going ebb and the west going flood should occur at -0047 HW Dover ie 0938 and the slack between the west going flood and east going ebb should occur at +0528 HW Dover ie 1553.We entered the west end of the Corryvreckan at 1446 and landed at Camas nam Bairneach at 1500. We enjoyed a view of the flood in action and a short luncheon but were keen to be on the water, in mid channel, to observe the exact moment of slack water. We launched again at 1525.Phil powering into the last of the flood at 1530. The current was still flowing west at 2.5kn.At 1539 several yachts entered the Corryvreckan. At 1544, in mid channel, the current was still flowing west at 2kn (see map below).Then at 1549, with the soaring ridges of Ben Cruachan in the distance,......the water turned oily calm and slack water had arrived. It lasted a whole 5 minutes until the ebb started with a bang and boils and eddy lines disturbed the surface again. In the distance, you can just see the small lighthouse on Reisa an t-Sruith in front of Tony's bow.So the published start of the flood was calculated at 1553 and we observed slack water between 1549 and 1554. Pretty good Eh?Well, err, actually no. There was no wind and we were in a high pressure system with preceding light winds and little swell. There are very many factors that can alter the change of tide in these parts and you need to go prepared to observe what you find on the day (and of course to have checked your calculations).[...]

Amazing Moms of the Animal Kingdom

2012-07-09T08:39:13.361-07:00

Emperor PenguinSuccessfully raising a chick is a truly remarkable accomplishment for this mom and dad. Courtship for a typical couple starts in March and April when temperatures in the Antarctic are around -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Emperor Penguins are also serial monogamists and will wait for their previous year's mate before breeding again. The female produces one egg and leaves it in the care of its father while she makes the nearly 74-mile journey back to sea to capture the fish that she will need for feeding. Upon returning to the nesting site, she must relocate her mate and chick. Then, the pair switches off caring for their offspring, while the other makes the same long journey to the ocean and back for food. Help out these amazing moms at The World Wildlife FundHarp SealAs if raising a child on a moving sheet of ice patrolled by Polar Bears and fur poachers wasn't hard enough, the harp seal mom nurses her pup on 48% fat seal milk continuously for 12 days without eating. Her pup will gain an average of 5 lbs. per day during this 12-day nursing period, while mom herself will lose about 7 lbs. per day.Koala BearRelying almost entirely on eucalyptus leaves for her diet, the Koala Bear mom rarely leaves the safety of her treetop home. The mom gives birth to a quarter-inch long joey, a hairless, blind, and earless version of herself. The joey stays in her unique pouch for about six months where it slowly grows from a diet of only her milk. After six months, the joey crawls out of the mother's pouch and takes up a place on to her back, where it will remain for another six months.MeerkatMeerkats live in packs of about 20, dominated by one mating pair that give birth to 2 to 5 pups in a litter, with up to four litters a year. In a group of meerkats with so many new pups, it is often the aunts and sisters of the group who care for the young. After 21 days underground, the pups emerge to join the foraging party, where they learn the skills needed to live in the Kalahari Desert.Queen BeeLiving like a queen isn't necessarily true for the Queen Honey Bee. On a warm day, she will mate with 12-15 males, or drones. But mating this one time is enough to fertilize her eggs for 2-7 years. Once mated, the Queen will lay around 2,000 eggs a day during the springtime throughout her life.OrangutanThe only exclusively Asian living genus of the great ape, the orangutan is considered "critically endangered" but with a reproduction cycle of about 6 to 7 years between offspring, repopulation has proved difficult. It does not help that orangutans reconstruct their homes of leaves and sticks every single day, meaning that a typical mom lives in about 30,000 new homes during her lifetime.Polar BearA habitat where the average winter temperature can reach -40 degrees Fahrenheit isn't exactly ideal for raising young, so mother polar bears dig an underground den where they remain in a hibernation-like state through the coldest winter months. Mothers birth between November and February, to a litter that almost always consists of two cubs, who then live in the safety of the den while nursing on the fasting mother's milk. At the end of this period, the family emerges from the den and eventually makes their way to the moving sea ice, where the mother can catch seals once again. At this point the mother has been fasting for up to eight months, while raising two hungry cubs.SeahorseTalk about role reversal: Many of the functions performed by females in most species are handled by dad in seahorse couples. Mating takes place when the female seahorse deposits dozens to thousands of eggs inside the male's brood pouch, as the male r[...]

Horse Anaesthesia

2012-07-09T08:51:12.881-07:00

Horses are dangerous animals to work with: Dangerous to you, dangerous to your equipment and dangerous to themselves. Not only are they dangerous, but they’re very expensive so you have to take the best care you possibly can.
This presents some difficulties when knocking a horse out for surgery. The bigger they are, the harder they fall, and if they fall hard they might hurt themselves, which will upset the horse owner. They’re allso heavy, and if they lie on their side or back for too long they may squash their muscles and become temporarily lame, or just not breathe. This also upsets horse owners.
It can be scary when a horse goes down for an anaesthetic if you don’t know what to expect, so we got to see several horses being knocked out with different anaesthetics. I made a video for you if you want to see. Be warned, the 3rd horse was a bit of a surprise!
