Robert teaches U.S. Coast Guard-ap­proved li­cens­ing cour­ses and hands-on mar­itime train­ing in nav­i­ga­tion and weather at var­i­ous schools for pro­fes­sional mariners. He also teaches nav­i­ga­tion and weather cour­ses on oc­ca­sion at TrawlerFest.

Robert will be teach­ing a crash course in celestial nav­i­ga­tion at this year’s New­port Cruis­erPort. Cruis­erPort will run from Septem­ber 13–16 in New­port, Rhode Is­land.

For ad­di­tional in­struc­tion on Robert’s nav­i­ga­tion tech­niques watch for his videos on Pas­sageMaker.com where he works through these skills step-by-step.
