Boater's Intro to Coastal Navigation

Education, Sailing, Class/Workshop

In this course, Captain Mike Reed teaches you how to read a marine chart, plot a course, measure distance, estimate time of travel, and more. We'll provide all the local charts and navigational tools needed, but feel free to bring your own. Navigation on inland waters using printed charts and common electronic navigation resources is the focus of this introductory class. Celestial navigation is not covered.
