    Re: Wind Velocity from Three Drifts

    Dear David,

    Thank you for the explanation!

    Now I wonder if that drift-corrected DR position needs a further correction for the sequence of the lefr-right or righht-left turns made for the drift determination. After the last turn we only can restore our initial course - but not the initial track line. Because of the drift - unless it was strictly 0° or 180° - we'll always be carried leeways.

    Or is it too small to be bothered about?

    Warm regards,
    Tony
