* Note THE STRAIT OF MALACCA—NORTH COAST OF SUMATERA
  Tides—Currents.—The flood sets E on the N coast of
Sumatera and the ebb W, rarely exceeding 2 knots at springs.
3.1 At neaps, they are sometimes imperceptible, except at the
points or over banks and narrow channels.
3.1 The currents are affected by the constant current out of the
Strait of Malacca, which takes a W direction along the N coast
through Sempitan Malaka (Malacca Passage). The currents
pass through Selat Benggala (Bengal Passage); for the greater
part of the year the ebb current is longer and stronger than the
flood current.
