How to set a tide clock

Unless you're a werewolf, in which case you'll probably be otherwise engaged at the time, the best time to set a tidal clock is at high tide during a full moon. If you are indeed involved in howling at the moon or some other unusual activity at full moon, high tide at a new moon is equally as good. During these times the sun, moon and earth all form a straight line, which in astronomical terms is called a syzygy. Interestingly syzygy is the shortest english word to contain three y's.

At a syzygy the effects of both the moon and the sun are in sychronisation, which will result in the high tide at a full or new moon being at its maximum reach during the month. This is known as a spring tide. Setting your clock at this time will ensure that it gives the most accurate times that it can for the future high and low tides to come. To actually set the clock during a high spring tide, simply use the adjustment knob or wheel, normally located at the back of the clock's movement, to turn the tide clock hand so that it points straight upward at the time of high tide.
