Learn to Navigate – 3rd Edition – An Introduction For All Ages
By Basil Mosenthal
Learn to Navigate has been the bestselling introduction to navigation for almost 20 years. With its refreshingly new approach, it introduces the basics in non-technical language, and takes the reader through each step with explanatory illustrations, chart extracts, screenshots and photographs. It is the ideal handbook for anyone wanting to learn the elements of navigation and how to put them into practice on the water.
Developments in electronic charts have changed the way people navigate, and this 3rd edition has been revised and updated to take that into account, equipping readers with both the traditional and modern skills they need to work out where they are and where they want to go. Brief and user-friendly, this non-scary guide covers:
- The essentials of reading a chart (paper and electronic)
- Understanding tides
- Using traditional and electronic navigation instruments
- Plotting a position and planning a passage, both on paper and using a chartplotter
Navigation can be a daunting subject, but this introduction brings it to life and shows that boaters of all ages can grasp the basics.
