**Steve**, Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 10:59amDraw a diagram. If the northern station is at A, and the southern is at B, and the yacht is at C,

angle C is 180-62-33 = 85°

Using the law of sines,

a/sin62° = b/sin33° = 25/sin85°

a (distance from B) = 22.16

b (distance from A) = 13.67

distance from coast is a sin33° = b sin62° = 12.07
