Correction for Leeway - Coastal Navigation Question
Hope you can answer and explain the answer to this question:
Let's say my point of departure is at point A and destination is to point B.
The track (Course to Make Good) from A to B is 145 degrees magnetic.
The winds are west at 22 knots when I depart point A at 1530. Let's say the leeway is 4 degrees and the boat speed is 6 knots. What course, corrected for leeway, should I steer from point A to point B?
Thanks so much.
