Boxing the compass is the action of naming all thirty-two clockwise points of the compass in order. The eight principal winds, eight half-winds and sixteen quarter winds together yield a 32-wind compass rose, with each compass direction point at 11.25° angle from the next.
A turn, from the Greek word τόρνος (tornos – a lathe), is a unit of angle measurement that is equal to 360°, 2π radians or τ (tau) radians. Turn is also referred to as a revolution or complete rotation or full circle or cycle or rev or rot.
