DMI local weather forecast next two days
DMI Tides next 24-timer at Kerteminde
Some informal remarks about tides and current in Kerteminde, given without garantee and to be used with care and uncertanity.
When water is raising the current goes into the harbour and and out off the harbour when falling.
Combined with a generally current going north in the belt, the result is whirling waters in Kerteminde Bay. There is few rules normally; but absolute not allways; observed.
The challenge is, that the racing area is in the middle and the rules is very unstable.
