The Canberra Times
For some considerable time, The Canberra Times has been publishing the
wrong tide times for Narooma.  The error has been in arithmetical
calculation in this office of the difference between tide times at Fort
Denison as published in standard tide tables and times at Narooma.  The
error, the source of which is lost in antiquity, was discovered last
week when the editor, relying on The Canberra Times figures, was swept
out to sea.  But he managed to return to shore - and ordered this correction.
