Presuming no ocean currents and no change in wind speed or direction during daylight hours and no clouds....

You're off the East Coast of N America.

You get up and set sail as soon as you can discern the rising sun. You follow the sun until you can no longer see it.

Other than maybe being a tad further south than where you started, where are you?
