You are sailing on starboard tack, steering a compass course of 130 degrees. When you tack onto port your new course is 34 degrees. With a deviation of 7 degrees east and a variation of 15 degrees west, what true course do you plot on your chart?

Send your answer to cruisingcompass@bwsailing.com.  A winner, who will receive a Blue Water Sailing hat, will be selected at random from the correct answers.

Congratulations to last week’s Mindbender winner, John Estell, for his correct answer: rig a forward spring line from the stern to the dock and put the engine in reverse.
