Traverse Sailing
List each leg's C-in-quadrant and D.
Current is considered an additional leg in the traverse.
Total up the l values with regard for N and S (l = D cos C).
Total up the p values with regard for E and W (p = D sin C).
Use the total l to find L2 by adding or subtracting it to L1.
Find Lm = (L1 + L2)/2
Use the total p and Lm to find Lo2 by using it to calculate DLo = p / cos Lm adding or subtracting it to Lo1.
Resultant course distance is D = sq rt (l2 + p2).
Resultant C = arctan (p/l), with prefix N or S, E or W from the totals above.
Figure out Cn.
