    You want the speed over the bottom (ground).

    How fast you are in the waves proves nothing.

    You should take the navigation course from the United States Power Squadron or U.S.C.G. Auxiliary.

      I did if you are in a position that you have big waves and you are in the bed of them , it’s about a formula never mind I already have the answer.
