You have to find a line parallel to the plotted course where the distance between the two bearing lines is 1.333 nm
Next step is to calculate leeway, and answer the remaining questions
This is what I surmised in Post #5... I had done this years ago, but appear to have forgotten.
Running Fix is now Lat: 41º 22.8'N Long: 71º 25.9'W
Close to the answer sheet's; 41º 22.35'N 71º 25.7'W
Course made good by my calculations is now 000ºm - answer sheet says 003ºm
This seems REALLY imprecise because I have no idea if the current or wind are helping or hurting my fix....
