    Re: Bowditch's Mercator Sailing Calculations

    Dear Robin,

    good idea for updating Bowditch, accuracy versus practical..., but not against didactic teaching.

    For reference: Kaplan, G. H. 1995, "Practical Sailing Formulas for Rhumb-Line Tracks on an Oblate Earth," Navigation, Vol. 42, No. 2, pp. 313–326.

    best regards,
