Approximate Course

Tide
Low water is at 1300 at 0.1m, this is a very low spring, almost chart datum and rowers in the later heats will experience a very strong flood tide against them on the way out and enjoy a very quick run in home.  I am not that familiar with Fowey but would not be surprised to see 2-3 knots of current mid tide and mid channel with such a big spring.
