When your boat is close hauled (approx 45 deg off the wind) and you are facing where the boat is pointing the tacking angle will be just behind your windward shoulder. (approx 100 deg from your heading).

It is usually easier to find a point on the land or a convenient cloud but 100 degrees added or subtracted from your heading will do for a compass course.
