    Leg 56 results/problems
    From: Paul Hirose

    Here are partial results for Leg 56.
    1.  TC & distance to Trans Ocean Point 2 not computed.
    2.  124 degrees true, 1480 nm to Cape Horn.
    3.  Mar 23 1348 Z DR = 50 12 S 82 04 W.
    Now come the star sights.  The round of sights occurs Mar 23 at about
    2350 Z.  At that time my DR plot = 51 12 S 80 18 W.  I'll reduce all
    sights from that position with HO 211; the sights are close enough
    together that ship's run is negligible.
    The only sight I've reduced so far is Sirius.  Ho = 50 36, Hc = 55 24!
    After checking everything, I can't see the problem.  What's wrong?
