Coastal Navigation - Quick Tips
Author: Captain John Jamieson
Genre: Practical guide
Pages count: 22
Description: How would you like to have fast, easy at-your-fingertips navigation techniques that could raise the bar on sailing navigation aboard your boat? After all, as wonderful as GPS or chart plotters are, they can black out in the blink of an eye. Or give you a false sense of security.
Just how did sailors find their way for so many years—fast and easy? And do most of their navigation without the complexities of plotting on a chart in a pitching, rolling cabin.
This book will show you how to pass a dangerous shoal without a nautical chart, find how far you are off the coast with just your fist, use canyons and valleys beneath the sea to find your way, and show you navigation methods on your chart plotter you won’t find in any user’s manual.
This book isn’t meant to be an encyclopedic work. Instead, it will show you the cream-of-the-crop navigation techniques that you can use in a small, cramped cockpit in most any sailing weather.
With just a bit of practice, you can master the basics of sailing navigation and gain the confidence you need to navigate anywhere you please. So turn the page, dive in, and have fun!
