Easy ways to remember which topmark is which
North and South Cardinals are easy to decipher -imagine the points
of the topmark point to the relevant edge of a chart – up for north and
down for south.
You can turn a West cardinal on its side and draw a ‘w’ around its edges. Alternatively, imagine it looks like a narrow waisted woman or wineglass.
You can draw an E around an east cardinal’s topmark – and it looks a bit like an egg!
Everyone has their own way of remembering it. What are yours?
