yachtsmen are likely to need in order to conduct their vessels from one place to
another safely and accurately. It will be valuable to beginners who are learning
about the techniques of navigation, whether at home or in the classroom, and
still serve as a useful source of reference for more experienced yachtsmen.
The book is divided into a number of sections: the instruments, charts and
books that a navigator needs and how to use them; how to keep track of a yacht's
position; the various' different position finding techniques; the effects of the
weather and tides on the yacht's position; radio aids; and the principles of
astronomical navigation. The final section - passage making - explains how to turn
all the available information into a practical course of action. For each aspect
of navigation, the necessary background theory is explained, and step-by-step
instructions are given.
The unique feature of this book is that theauthor recognizes the existence of error in
navigation. He describes the different ways in which errors can occur, and
explains how to allows for them. This means that information can be interpreted
in a more accurate way, and one's navigation becomes as exact as possible.
The book is illustrated with 8 pages of colour charts and 150 two-colour
line diagrams.
