    This is your traditional sun-run-sun fix. it is even better if you can get
    a morning sight as well to give a 3p/l fix. On a passage it is usual to run
    the AM sight up to the noon MerPass and the PM sight back to it thus
    establishing the noon position for the day.
    
    An EP by definition is that established by DR.
