Rhumb Line

Restaurant & Tavern

Sixty-two Bridge Street
Newport, Rhode Island 02840

A ship following the Rhumb Line between two places does not change true course. A Rhumb Line makes the same angle with all meridians it crosses and appears as a straight line on a Mercator chart. The principle advantage of a Rhumb Line is that it maintains true direction.
