Section 12: Estimated Position and Course to Steer
We return now to plotting our position by course steered and
distance logged from a known point of departure with
allowance for tidal stream and leeway.
The closely related topic of plotting the course to steer
to a required destination or waypoint by compensating for
tide and leeway is also covered.
The section comprises the following:
Principle behind the EP vector triangle
Worked examples of estimated position
Method for plotting course to steer
