Hello,

I'm wondering the difference between blue and red color lines in the Charts?
Can somebody explain me this difference? I didn't find the answer in the manual.

Thanks in advance.

Red is loxodrome/Rhumb line. You follow it when sailing at fixed heading.

Blue is orthodrome/Great Circle - the proper straight line between two points. You sail it when using a waypoint.
