Actually, Sailaway's right... the variation is 13˚ West.. since the magnetic heading is 13˚ at 0˚ True... however the verbal part of the explanation is correct... My bad... it should be 13˚ WEST. I've corrected the mistake in my original post so as not to confuse anyone...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
