I think I misread the relative velocity as due East rather than from East so I got a bearing of 76 but it should be 104 I think.
Surely it should still be 76 as your velocity(Vw=16i+4j I think) was where the wind was blowing from anyway so finding the angle of that would give you the direction the wind was blowing from.

M4 requires vectors and some geometry for relative motion , differential equations (first and second order) for damped oscillations and variable resistance of air. The concepts are not really difficult in neither M3 nor M4, however you should know that exams are quiet tiring with lots of calculations in M3 and many directions in M4 (relative motion).

The specification hasn't changed since the exam in January 2002, so there are 21 past papers.
