From the Back Cover:

Navigation has never been so simple.

Navigators have only two questions:

  • Where am I?
  • Where do I go now?

This book shows the simplest way to answer these questions. It starts from scratch, uses no jargon and features graphics instead of words wherever possible.

  • Charts
  • Giving a position
  • Tides
  • Estimated position (EP)
  • Course to steer (CTS)
  • Pilotage
  • Passage planning
  • Electronics

Navigation is fun, keeps you safe and speeds you to your destination. With this book in one hand and your trusty dividers in the other, you need never be lost again!
