    To a large extent it also depends on the windage of your boat, its
    underwater shape and the power of your engine.  I severely doubt that
    any equation will fix this better than judgement.  Master mariners now
    rely on powerful thrusters and twin props I am afraid - sheer brute
    force.  Our old boat is a pig in adverse wind conditions and needs great
    care to manoeuvre in a narrow entrance.  However with plenty of power
    carefully on tap generally things are OK.
