I *agree* with Carl's answer for the Guantanamo Bay location.


David Bowman

At the nit-picking level, I disagree with both.
Bearings on Earth are given with N as 0 degrees, read clockwise,
So Carl and David are offering an initial bearing of 60.5 degrees.

I will admit that the line I stretched over a globe could only provide
me with an estimate of 66 degrees for the initial bearing.
