Let me add more information, if this helps. From the Current Tables, current velocity is 3.48 Ebb, and Ebb direction is 266 degrees TRUE.
Does this help? Thanks.[/QUOTE]
Well...yeah, Information regarding a 3.5 kn current would have been useful.
Any more rabbits in the hat?
So this is a compound problem... Set and Drift... and Leeway.
You need to compute the course to steer using the set and drift.... This is where your, time, distance and speed now become a factor....
Then apply the leeway... after.... you figure out the CST from the set and drift problem
Good luck...
Don't forget to use TVMDC..to go from true to mag..or visa versa..
Normally when I see these course books...they give you a deviation table to work with too...keep looking..I'll bet you it's there somewhere.
here's a you tube video for ya ... he could have done this a little better..but you get the idea.
