Our last FIX position was (03d 00.00'N  082d 00.0'W) @ 10:51:11UT @
26/06/2001. We are sailing toward MOP1(03d 00.0'N  110d 00.0'W) where
we will turn and head for Hawaii.

At a Log distance traveled of 710.5 Nmi from the FIX position. TC 270.0d,
Speed 10.0 Kts, we determine that we have entered the Equatorial Counter
Current.

1)  What is the DR position on entering the Equatorial Counter Current?
--  -------------------------------------------------------------------

On the morning of 30/06/2001 we manage the following sights:

Body            UT/GMT          Hs

Fomalhaut       11:53:00        54d 01.8'
Deneb           11:55:10        30d 03.8'

Venus           12:04:11        38d 50.8'

2)  What is the DR position at the time of the Fomalhaut sight?
--  -----------------------------------------------------------

3)  What is the position FIX?
--  -------------------------

TC 270.0d, Speed 10.0 Kts, Current Drift 1.0 Kts, Set 280.0d. Var 2.0dE,
Dev 1.5dE.

4)  What is the Compass Course(CC)/Course-to-Steer to MOP1(03d 00.0'N
110d 00.0'W) from the FIX position?
--  -----------------------------------------------------------------

5)  What is the distance to MOP1(03d 00.0'N  110d 00.0'W)?
