Best-selling RYA Navigation Handbook and essential reading for anyone taking to the water and looking for the complete guide to navigation.
Navigation techniques and practices have changed dramatically over the years and today, many sailors and motor boaters regard electronic instruments as their principal means of navigation. However, traditional methods still have an important part to play, as does knowledge of aspects such as tides, lights, buoys and beacons.
This eBook edition has been designed with that in mind; to provide the reader with a sound understanding of the principles of navigation as well as providing insight into the ways in which electronic navigation can be used to best effect, including extended chapter summaries and additional animations.
This eBook will help ensure the development of a ‘well rounded’ and competent navigator. Melanie Bartlett is one of the country’s leading experts on navigation. Melanie learnt to navigate as part of her professional training at Dartmouth Naval College and then since leaving the navy has become the Technical Editor of Motor Boat and Yachting magazine.
