Description: This book is intended for the general reader as well as for the practical navigator. It explains, in non-technical language and without the use of complicated mathematical formulas, the fundamental facts and principles that form the basis of all navigational methods.
The theory of the Sumner lines of position is simple and widely applicable to all navigational problems, and forms the basis upon which the whole theory of practical navigation depends. Therefore the Sumner method of finding one's position at sea, combined with modern methods of reduction, is covered extensively. Astronomy and nautical use of celestial bodies, time and its determination, nautical almanac are explained as well. At the end of each chapter is to be found a sort of appendix containing notes, formulas, and practical examples. This portion of the book forms a condensed treatise on modern methods of navigation. A considerable part of the book is devoted to an explanation of the tides and tidal currents, their peculiarities and their causes.
