Quiz Answer

15 April, 2021

Answer to question for 8th April.

If you’re lucky there will be some measured distance markers along the shoreline which you could use.
Take the time taken to travel between the beacons and divide the distance by the time to get an average speed. (Your actual speed may fluctuate slightly whilst travelling between the beacons.)
Then check your calculations, taking tide into consideration, with your log.
If there are no distance markers, try using a couple of landmarks and measure the distance between them on the chart. Take your time from when each landmark shows the same bearing using a hand-bearing compass.
