Re: Navigation Problem

Lol,

Some good replies.... No workable solution I can see.

Smartphone would give me SOG, magnetic direction of boat and comparing consecutive gps positions would give me direction of travel. Dividing the beat angles by 2 should get the wind direction. Surely this lot should give me a good set of data to Sussex current out

It is the tidal currents I am trying to find as opposed to tides.

Thanks in advance
