How to find set and drift and how to counteract it are two important techniques to learn. There are a lot of words and numbers in the explanation – but once you get to grips with it – you will find it is a relatively simple process. It’s also very satisfying to be able to put this skill into practice, especially if you are rescuing someone – we used this on many occasions when heading out to rescue a vessel on the East coast of Australia.
In the “Finding Set and Drift” video there is a practice question. Work through the first part (finding Set and Drift via deduced reckoning and a 3-bearing fix), then use that Set and Drift for the next part of the journey/exercise.
