« back to classes page
A great course for boaters new to navigation, students planning a first cruise to Catalina and students needing a refresher before taking the USCG Licensing course.  While the skills of coastal navigation, have evolved over the years, the basic goal is still to determine your position and to find a safe route to a destination using landmarks, both natural and manmade, as reference points.   Class begins with an introduction to charts and plotting tools.  By the second week, you will be finding latitude and longitude, determining distance and direction.  Other topics include plotting, time/speed/distance calculations, compass and compass error, bearings, positioning and running fixes. This course has a strong emphasis on practical skills and students should expect one or two hours of homework per week.  Min 10/max 24 students. 7-weeks

Text & Materials:  Basic Coastal Navigation, 2nd Edition, Chart 18746, Chart TR1210 and plotting tools
