23.17 The Compass and Bearings at Sea


The compass for sea navigation has sixteen points. Winds may come from any of
those points, and ships may navigate towards any of those as well. The points
are also called bearings, or could be said as in 'bearing north-northeast'
for example.

   nnw  ^  nne
  NW    |    NE      North, North-northeast, Northeast, East-northeast
 wnw    |    ene     East,  East-southeast,  Southeast, South-southeast
