    Hello, helloying!

    Code:
                            M
                            |
          N                 |
          |                B* θ
          |              *  |*
          |        13 * 60 | *
          |        *        |  *
          | 60 *           |   *
          |  *              |    * 9.5
        A *   44           S     *
          |     *                  *
          |           *             *
          |                 *        *
          |                       *   *
          |                            * C
          |

    You found that \angle ABC = 64.1^o

    Note that \angle ABS = 60^o.

    Hence: \angle SBC = 4.1^o.


    The bearing of C from B is: . \theta \:=\:\angle MBC \:=\:180^o - 4.1^o \:=\:175.9^o
