Thanks Rusty. I don't think English ever uses the capital letter at the beginning of cardinal directions except in proper nouns, such as "North America" and "South Carolina". It strikes me as odd that you would use the capital letter at the beginning of "north" to describe where a ship is sailing or where a compass points, but other than that the rules make sense.
