ASA 107, Celestial Navigation
April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Going Off The Grid! Celestial navigation is making a spirited comeback. This four-day workshop is both a “hands-on, how-to” practical course on celestial navigation. Tuning in to the ocean will make you a better sailor. Anybody can stare at a GPS/Plotter; it takes knowledge and inspiration to navigate. Even in these days of satellites and electronic navigation, the self reliant mariner is adept at the art of celestial navigation. Topics include time and coordinate systems, operation and use of the sextant, sight reduction methods for sun, moon and stars, running fixes, determining compass deviation and more.
