JouvertSpirit how about this one?

two guys want to meet at sea soon as possible.
what course they have to set respectively to minimize intercept time?


Easy, they progress directly toward each other at that instant since they are in identical boats with the same wind drag (in essence they are mere mathematical points). Cam's redhead's snout is pointing at the boat with the acorns, and she really likes it when the sea gets sloppy.

Looks like the wind is about 10 deg to the reciprocal course. The optimal courses will depend on how well the boat sailing upwind will point.

camaraderie Yep..Epic, That WAS fun...now my brain is full...may I be excused?

EpicAdventure camaraderie: CapnHand's solution is indeed assuming that my friend's boat is to the west of my boat.

Given that interpretation of the problem, CapnHand's solution is correct.

Kind of a fun little algebra problem!

denby One bit of information is missing, the bearing of the friends boat to yours. With this info you can figure it out in a minute on a manuvering board
