Product Description

Here, at last, is a bright modern approach to astro navigation, for those wanting a little more than just a textbook to pass an exam.

First there is a brief outline of the solar system and then a step by step guide to finding your position on the ocean, both with and without a pocket calculator for working out sun and star sights. Best of all are the outstanding colour illustrations to assist novices in star recognition. This book will prove a real boon to anyone struggling with lengthy sight reduction tables, and is a welcome modern addition to the subject.

Francois Meyrier has been practising astro navigation for many years since developing a passion for the subject during his military service in the National Marines. He has taught astro navigation for many years, more recently at the Naval Centre at Glenard. He has skippered boats in all the seas of the world.
