Reporting Ranges - 12097_17
REPORTING BEARINGS The  direction  of  an  object  from  your  ship  is  called  the bearing. Bearings are measured in degrees clockwise around a circle from 000° to 360°. The ship’s bow is the reference point for relative bearings. For example, a sailboat dead ahead would bear 000°, a lighthouse off the stern would bear 180°, a ship directly off the port beam would bear 270°, and so on. True  or  geographic  north  is  the  reference  point  for  true bearings; they are read directly from the gyro compass or a gyro repeater. The  magnetic  North  Pole  is  the  reference  point  for  magnetic bearings; they can be read from the ship’s magnetic compass. 1-8
