The one that means you get the same number on the display on both sides - it depends on the weather conditions.

Typically we have 70 I think.

However, in practice, it takes too much fiddling to adjust so the crew (C) remembers the numbers for each side and calls the shots.

Leave it on 'Compass' rather than 'Tactical' then it doesn't matter.

I spent time fiddling around whilst waiting for starts at some event a while back and came up with 75 degrees. However,  it is always wrong, because the conditions are always different, so I returned to the old faithful of remebering the number on each tack.
