About the Author:
Robert Reeder is a 1,600-ton master in the Seattle area. He drives passenger ferries for a living and drives tiny little sailboats for the pure, unbridled fun of it. 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.
