Abstract. We present an example of application covering several cases using the extension of the Pontryaguine minimum principle (PMP) in the case where we add a constraint on reaching a target variety at the final time: the Zermelo problem with current speed more than Boat speed hypothesis, where we consider a boat crossing a channel under a strong current and where we try to reach the opposite bank by minimizing the lateral offset or by minimizing the crossing time.
