    Leg 56
    From: Millard Kirk
    Date: 1999 Jul 14, 17:12 EDT

    My first attempt at Leg 56 I notice the typo's and decided to wait until Dan
    corrected the typo's. He usually catches those error very quickly and he
    Now I start to work the problem.  Answers 1 and 2 correspond with the
    answers given by Dan/
    My question to the list is concerning question # 3.   I assumed we started
    on 11:50:00 UTC @ 20/03/1999 and traveled to 18:48:23 UTC 23/03/1999  that
    is  3 days and 6 hrs 58 min 23 sec., or 78 hrs 58 min 23 sec.  That means
    our DR should reflect 78 hrs 58 min 23 sec traveling at 10.3 kts on a course
    of 124.6  true.  We were buffeted for two days (I don't know what that
    means), but in any case I have trouble coming up with the correct DR for
    problem # 3.   Any Help!
    Learning the Hard Way!!
