Re: Charting a course
I have always(well a while back now) done it with waypoints every certain distance.
you have a destination waypoint and a starting waypoint.
I never use a track function because like jon and capta says you sail by wind and current direction. so its futile to try to go down the highway mentality.
Usually I would add waypoints based on islands or shoals, or shallow areas, or places that I would tack over on another course.
All I need is a chart and a gps...a pencil, some parallel rulers and a protractor.
But I like sailing though, jajajaja
Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
