Tide table error for Brest and Oban

There is a serious error in the tidal information for Brest (page 400) and Oban in the Reeds PBO Small Craft 2006 Almanac. We are trying to alert as many mariners as possible to this, and are asking yacht clubs, marinas, harbourmasters, chandleries and bookshops to display a notice to this effect. The correct tidal information is available on our website for download, so please do visit

Note the "backstay chainplate which was reinforced and bolted to the outside of the transom.(it was the backstay chainplate mounting under the aft deck that failed when the rig was lost) ( the boat was Landamores built)" says Andy Morris
