For those of us who enjoy piloting, when you plot a course for St Croix, what do you figure for current?

We pointed the auto pilot towards the eastern end of St. Croix figuring we'd have some leeway towards the west. Didn't happen. Not one bit. On the way north we just pointed the boat to the destination and that's where we ended up. So I don't think you need to worry about it.

The currents are produced by tides and also wind directIon.
You would have to adjust the day you’re leaving or you can go to your chart plotter and aim for a point on land and hold the course for an hour and you can see the degrees your off your point
