The effect of this turning on the incident is very significant.
The sketch diagram below, not drawn to scale, indicates how the effect is greater than appears in the photos because of the progressive movement of Seaway to the North.
The offset distance from the actual curved track to the projected line of the original track (287) appears less in the photos as the Seaway has moved Northward between photos, which show only the additional offset, not the cumulative offset which is the important one.

Effect Of Seaway’s Turning. JJ Report. Fastest Sailing Video

Copied from post 5 Dec’14 – The plot shows …
1. If Seaway had maintained course & speed from the Photo 1 position, both vessels would have passed a minimum of aprox 0.065 nmile, or 120 mtrs apart at the closest point of approach. Classique would have crossed ahead of Seaway at 0.6 nmile or 1100 mtrs away, at about 1.5 minutes before photo 3. This in my opinion is a perfectly safe distance in the area concerned.
2. The single factor that caused the 2 vessels to approach as close as they did was the incremental changing of Seaway’s course to starboard throughout all the time covered by the photographs. If Seaway had maintained course, safe distances would have been maintained.
3. It cannot be argued that the altering of Seaway’s course to starboard was to avoid a collision; action to avoid collision must be bold & clear, not incremental & would not have occurred until ‘the last moment’.
4. It cannot be argued that the altering of Seaway’s course to starboard was “Yaw”, as yaw requires an altering of heading around an average course. Yaw is caused by the inability of the vessel to maintain a straight course. Seaway is perfectly capable of steering a better course than plus or minus 5* as stated by Mr Young, especially in the calm conditions at the time. In addition, Seaway if yawing would still show as 286*T on the scale of the plot.
5. It cannot be argued that the altering of Seaway’s course to starboard was “drift”, as this would require a bodily movement Seaway sideways at an excessive rate whilst maintaining the same heading; there was no wind or tide to do this & if there was, Classique would have been significantly more affected by this than Seaway would have been. If by his use of the word “drift” Mr Young means a progressive off-course cumulative course change in one direction, then he is near the truth of what occurred.
