This I know the answer to although I originally heard it in a slightly different version. However I didn't figure it out until a clue was given regarding one particular kind of wildlife one might encounter on the trip.

Not directly related to the OP's question, but . . . some very cool maps of "what is directly over the horizon from your beach."

Re: What is Due East?

After reading all of this, I am so glad I sail out of San Felipe, Baja on the Sea of Cortez! I sail due east until I hit the mainland. Then I jump off the boat and ask a fisherman where I am. I follow his directions.

Thumbs down Re: What is Due East?

The fundamental mistake you have made is to believe the TV program.
The question did not say 'if you follow the compass course of 90 degrees' so; due East is 90 T.
The answer was incorrect. Call the contestant back for a replay
