Book Details

Format: EPUB

Page count: 72 pages

File size: 8.7 MB

Protection: DRM

Language: English

The 12th edition of this bestselling book is proof of the

success of Mary Blewitt’s concise and clear style in explaining a

particularly difficult skill, and it has been the bible for many

generations of ocean navigators.

Since this book was first published, the huge advances in electronic

navigation have transported most offshore navigators to a world of

press-button convenience. However, there is still a vital need for

traditional skills when things go wrong: batteries can fail, aerials go

overboard, and electronics have been known to get wet.

A bestseller for over 50 years, Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen is

a model of simplicity and clarity. The worked examples require only

straightforward addition and subtraction, which explains why this book

has truly earned its reputation for admirable conciseness and for

making a tricky subject easy to understand.
