I have sailed in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean and have observed that the
tides in both areas are negligible. I think I undestand why in the Med (it's
basically a big lake with only narrow links to the oceans), but surely the
Caribbean is connected to the Atlantic. Why is it not influenced by the same tides?
