    Hello Greg,

    attached some pages from my Manual de Náutica, available for free on my Website.

    And the example solved with the application: Meteorology - Instrumentation.

    Hi All,

    This may be interesting too. It's the original - non graphical way to solve a wind triangle ( I substituted marine terms):

    CORRECTION ANGLE = ASIN(((DRIFT X SIN(SET-TC))/STW)

    SOG=SQRT((STW2 + DRIFT2) - (((2 X STW) X DRIFT) X COS(TC - SET + CORRECTION ANGLE)))

    I have used this in a navigation spreadsheet, and it works very well hopefully I transcribed all of the (( correctly fot this email
