Then steer about 143° true (SSE. 7: E. mag.) to a position midway between a bell buoy and red and black buoy northward, then gradually haul southward and bring Bird Island range lights in line astern, course 212o true (SW. 34 S. mag.). Hold this course until up to can buoy“ 3," then bring Fort Mason range lights in line astern, course 180° true (S. 38 W. mag.) to the Entrance gas buoy, from which a course can be shaped as desired.
