Power Squadron Junior Navigation Course
Thursday, November 16, 2017 9:00 AM
Learn Celestial Navigation on Thurmond Lake
Learn celestial navigation in a two-part series beginning with the USPS Junior Navigation (JN) course. This course will be taught by Thurmond Lake Sail and Power Squadron instructors. We will start with the navigational triangle and quickly jump to the procedure to take sextant sightings on the sun and 'reduce' these readings to estimates of your latitude and longitude. Having the USPS Piloting courses is very useful for JN.
The JN course will be offered on Thursdays at the Recreational Center, either in the morning (9:00am till noon) or in the evenings (6:00pm till 9:00pm) depending on response. We will have seven sessions starting on October 19th.
Course materials are $76 for members and $114 for non-members.
