If the mark is visible and there's land behind it, watch whether the mark is moving relative to the land behind. If the mark is moving downwind, you'll make the mark, and you can even bear away to gain some speed if you're confident you won't be headed by a wind shift. If it's moving upwind, you won't make the mark unless you change something.
