Tempest is on a distinguished road
What period of time and distance are you using to measure the amount of leeway?
How did you arrive at that number? Is it leeway..or current?

If it's 4 degrees of leeway over the 2.9 miles... the short answer is you steer 141 degrees.

If it's 4 degrees per mile..it's another story..and calculation
