When the GPS ceases to work, be guided by the sun.

This is the first of a two-course program of Offshore Navigation for the recreational boater. Learn to use a marine sextant to derive lines of position and a running fix from sights on the sun. When you are boating offshore, remember that GPS is not infallible, nor always available. Be confident when no aids to navigation or land objects are in sight.

A Sextant demonstration will happen prior to classes starting, video recorded and made available during the course period.

This course will be available online through 'Go To Meeting' and facilitated by Past Chief Commander Tony Gardiner with some in class instruction for clarification of the more difficult course information. The specific weekly class time and night of the week to be determined by class participants.

Almost a decade ago, Cruisers Yachts Inc., launched an entire line of express cruisers called “Cantius” (named after company owner KC Stock’s grandfather) that began with the 48Cantius then came the 54, the 60 and now the Cantius 50. In the fall of 2017, we will be at the debut of the 42 Cantius at the Fort Lauderdale International boat show.
