Practical Navigation Illustrated What if you could take a voyage with an 'ancient mariner' and have him teach you the navigation skills he has acquired over a lifetime of sailing? Now you can. Come along with Nick De Munnik as he explains basic navigation fundamentals and shows you how to use them for coastal, electronic and celestial navigation.
The author's conversational and easy to understand descriptions include extensive diagrams and examples, making all aspects of boat navigation seem intuitive. This book is a ‘must have’ for the new boater and a great reference for the seasoned sailer.
Building on the navigational skills covered in the coastal and electronic navigation sections, the celestial navigation section is second to none. Nick developed this for his celestial navigation courses and it continues to be used as class materials in celestial navigation courses today.
