What's hard about it? If you tack through 110 degrees on the compass, you tack through 110 degrees on the compass.
You'd see leeway as being the difference between your compass heading and your course over the ground.
Anyway, the faster the boat, the bigger the difference between AWA and TWA, when going upwind.
The only way to tack through 110 degrees then sail at 45' AWA is to be going slow. About 25% of TWS.
