Coastal Navigation

Don't End up Lost at Sea

never a great feeling to be lost

we’ll introduce you to proper techniques for navigation and pilotage within the sight of land

they’re called charts – not maps – and we’ll wander through what all those markings are on them, how to plot tracks, use the accompanying publications

you’ll be plotting fixes, finding out when you’ll get there – and when to leave to make it through the passes at the best times

yup – we know the electronic gadgetry might help, but it could also fail, so learn how to do it without all the extra gizmos and you’ll be so much better off long run

this is a HANDS ON approach and you will need some low tech gizmos to go with the traditional, proper approach covered

Learning is the Gateway to Having Fun on the Water
