Introduction to Coastal Navigation
Class sessions: February 27, March 12 and April 2, 2016
This three-day workshop will provide a hands-on approach to determining your position using charts and features in the water and ashore, including an introduction to latitude and longitude, interpretation of nautical chart symbols, height and depth information, plotting courses and bearings, computing speed, time and distance, and basic planning for a passage.
Charts will be provided. Navigation instruments will be available for use during class and for loan. If you have your own instruments, by all means bring them. If you do not have any, do not purchase any until after the first class.
