As we see in the picture, at the equator in the north and south the current moves from west to east.The top of the tidal bulge moves at something like 1000 miles per hour at the equator (and near zero at the poles).It is very pleasant to see figures and this is the language of facts and practical mechanics
But it is important to recognise that no water actually moves that fast.
If the tidal hump moves from east to west at a speed of 1000 mph (this is almost supersonic speed)
And on this video it is so
Now we need to find out at what speed from east to west the current flows, at least approximately.
Two tidal hills per day, which move from east to west at a speed of 1000 mph, should create a decent speed.
All the way around!
