Presentation Transcript
Determining Course to Steer

On November 18, 2003 we plan on leaving Thieves Bay Marina, Mouat Point Light (L4846.5’N 12318.75’W) for Isabella Island (L4843.75’N 12325.75’W). We will use the current information for Swanson Channel. The chart shows the flood direction to be 360. Using our current prediction tables, we determine that that the drift is 1 knot. Our boat speed is 5 knots. Our course to make good is 242T. We need to gauge our speed made good and our course to steer. Knowing the distance to travel our estimated time of arrival can also be computed. We can also calculate estimated positions.

Determining Course to Steer

Step 1 – Draw and label the course to make good.
