 Capt Steve Miller posted May 31, 2017 07:09 AM                   Your DR position is correct.7deg leeway simply means that the wind is pushing your vessel 7 deg off your intended course in the direction that the wind is blowing.For example on the first leg your intended course is 305 M or (for plotting) 325 T. With the wind blowing over your port side it is pushing your vessel to starboard thus your course would be 325 T plus 7 deg = 332 T. Apply the same logic to the other legs. Remember when you tack the wind will be over your starboard side thus you subtract the 7 deg leeway. From: Starpath
