The sea is an extreme environment capable of incredible highs and lows, creating both euphoric experiences and catastrophic destruction.
At Tidal Compass, we believe the secret to safely engaging with the sea is to learn its ways and implement strategies that #SeasThePower, harnessing the ocean's energy to our advantage while navigating around the dangers.
We're sailing to explore solutions to Rising Seas, the greatest challenge of the 21st Century.
Our journey started in 2014 when William designed his iconic Tidal Compass print.
Giclee Printed on 310gsm Fine Art paper with archival inks, a Tidal Compass is a work of art for home that helps you stay smart at sea. The outer [blue] ring shows the connection between tides and the moon, while the inner [white] ring shows the cycle of currents flowing along the coast; essential knowledge for anyone who lives by the sea.
William is author of The Book of Tides, The World of Tides & Tides and the Ocean. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and founded Tidal Compass in 2014 to increase sea-safety and performance. As an experienced swimmer, surfer, sailor, and PADI Rescue Diver William shares knowledge through publications including Coast, Sailing Today, Yachting Monthly and Outdoor Swimmer. As an experienced public speaker, you can book him for private events to boost your knowledge of the sea.
