I know that the navigators get fed up with this irritating question during third-party inspections. Extend the course line of the target vessel Line WA.

From position "r", you plot the distance you travel in those 6 minutes, in the opposite direction you traveled. How much course must each vessel alter to maintain a certain CPA with each other?

Let us assume a very realistic situation. Now as we are not changing our speed, the length WO will remain same. This would be the TCPA. By this I mean, the acquired vector is moving away from the target.

Accept Maryland Nautical uses cookies to enhance your e-commerce experience. We now know the basics of radar plotting and it is time to move on to little-advanced ways of using radar plotting. This is the distance covered by the target in 12 minutes.

This page is provided by backchuck. Let me clarify it with a realistic example. This represents the the relative motion of the target after you maneuver Fig 7.

Now with simple mathematics calculate the time the target would take to cover 5. In this case, the course of the target is degrees and speed is 7 Knots WA measures 1. But how much course we must alter to maintain that CPA? Let us say your course is degrees and speed is 12 knots. Have you been doing radar plotting?

Another very well written article from you Capt. WA is the course and speed of the target vessel.

The best way to increase the CPA is to alter our course. There are plenty of texts on how radar works and how to operate it.
