Today Wednesday, 17th of September of 2014, the sun will rise in Lorient at 7:54 h and sunset will be at 20:22 h. The moon rose in the northeast (62º) at 1:23 h and will set in the northwest (297º) at 16:39 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 5:45 h and the next low tide at 18:30 h. The only high tide of the day will be at 12:20 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Crescent. Today we will have 12 hours and 28 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 14:08 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 16 hours and 39 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 38, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 41 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 44. The tide heights today are 1.9 m, 3.8 m and 1.9 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Lorient which is of 5.6 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Lorient tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods.

Tide timetable for Lorient. The times are generated in local time in Brittany (Atlantic Coast) and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Lorient are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
