The Ionian Gulf
Sorry about the map being such a mess. It's in the middle of being redesigned, and right now this is the best one I have.
You can see that you've come out of the Adriatic and into the Ionian Gulf. The Captain understands that once you've gotten past the Ionian Islands, the ship will catch prevailing winds that blow south by south east, as opposed to southwest.
The town of Zante is beyond Ithaca (the island in the extreme bottom left corner). The Captain means to make for there and rest the crew for two days. In the meantime, this is as much time as I have to work out the calculations for the above ... but journeys do tend to be long and boring, so I guess I'm presenting the actual feel for the events correctly.
