the direction perpendicular to the shore(s) has a bearing of 0°.
The way of the boat through the water, the current of the river and this perpendicular direction form a right triangle. (See attachment)
the way per second of the boat over ground is (use Pythagorian Theorem):
to a) You have to steer the boat against the current with an angle of:
