This book is the second edition of the 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 book edition has been redesigned 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 book will help to ensure the development of a ‘well rounded’ and competent Navigator.
