    Frank: This was worthwhile.....totally rusty.
    While watching the last episode of Victoria, really thrilling  drama, after plotting and putting on my best glasses for eyeballing data, I calculated 41 degrees 25.8 N, 71 47.3 W . Estimated time of LAN about 16:59:06.
    Since I’ve taken your course, I assume you are looking toward Block Island Sound, Stonington, CT more or less. Hope the course went well. Maybe in that little park standing on the rocks ?
    Best regards,

    I think Frank must be a good swimmer according to Google Earth. Presumably Frank's sights are better than my calculation.

    LAT 41d 27.1N

    LAN by equal altitudes 165815UT EoT 12m 2s ( I suppose the change in declination may shift this a bit which may be why he's got wet.)

    LON by Time Sight on 172319 is 71d 24.9W
