Navigation Questions / Answers

Due to taking my advanced course this weekend I thought I'd better brush up on my Navigation & Chart skills.

I've found an excellent site for people like me. . - 'P Plate drivers'

http://www.sailingissues.com/navcourse0.html

Are there any other sites to see & learn from?

Pete

Let us know how you get on with your Running Fixes

Seriously though - best of luck on the course; it's not that bad.

Where are you doing it?

If you manage to do one at 25knts at night in a RIB I would be very seriously impressed

Once again, best of luck.

Personally, I would have said that the website address gave that away!
http://www.sailingissues.com/navcourse0.html

But isn't navigation the SAME anyway?
Is a Cardinal Bouy not the same no matter if you are in a Powered or non powered vessel?
Do we not use the same Charts?

But that is why I posted this!


I would like to know of other sites of this type - ?
Are there any?

Pete
