A long distance swimmer is able to swim through still water at 4km/hr. She wishes to swim from Port Angeles, WA due north to Victoria, B.C., a distance of 50km. An ocean current flows through the Strait of Juan de Fuca from west to east at 3km/hr. In what direction should she swim to make the crossing along a straight line between the two cities?
49 degrees west of north
