Nav­i­gat­ing By The Stars

Soundings - - Books -

To­day’s tech­nol­ogy makes nav­i­gat­ing much eas­ier, but elec­tronic de­vices are not in­fal­li­ble. Tra­di­tional nav­i­ga­tion skills are a hall­mark of pru­dent seamanship, and they can be life­sav­ing when you’re at sea. Ce­les­tial Nav­i­ga­tion for Yachts­men by Mary Ble­witt has been up­dated and re­vised by Andy Du Port, a for­mer editor of Reeds Nau­ti­cal Al­manac and a re­tired com­modore of the Royal Navy. The 13th edition in­cludes ex­am­ples, di­a­grams and guid­ance on the the­ory and prac­tice of ce­les­tial nav­i­ga­tion. It con­tains prac­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion for novice nav­i­ga­tors and old salts look­ing to re­fresh their skills. (Blooms­bury, $17)
