Product Description

There is deep mystery and profound satisfaction in finding your position on the earth by reference to the sun, moon, and stars–to not mention profound relief when the GPS receiver stops working in mid-passage. For this reason knowledge of celestial navigation is still a rite of initiation, and its practice still a favorite pastime among serious cruisers.

That this edition of Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen will have to appear 44 years after the first British edition and 27 years after its first publication in the U.S. is eloquent testimony to the creator’s clear, concise explanation of a difficult skill. Through those years, Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen has been the most efficient-known, best-loved primer on the subject right through the English-speaking world. It successfully teaches sailors who have been demoralized by bigger books. It remains “the famous little book” on celestial navigation.

Among other changes, this edition substitutes the Nautical Almanac for the Air Almanac, discusses the “short” tables in keeping with H.O. 211, expands the discussion in a couple of areas, fine-tunes it in others, and shows how to advance a line of position for a running fix from sun sights. The only mathematics involved are straightforward addition and subtraction.

Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen has spawned many imitators through the years, but it’s still the most efficient–with this new edition more than ever.
