Do you :
A) Get your pocket GPS ou and put in your new way point
B) You've got everything on board to plan your route and you continue with your compas
C) Your GPS was only a backup and you where doing everything with a compass anyway
D) You turn around and go home quick before you lose sight of the coast

At my present state of experience and equipement I would probably choose option D but i'm interested in your replies.
Pablo: I'd already have the waypoint in my pocket GPS as my main backup, so it would be A) for me, with B) as my fallback option
