Navigating MidCoast Maine

$79

with Coast Guard Auxiliary

Calendar Sep 24, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Here are three easy ways to make boating more enjoyable: 1) learn the basics about the information found on nautical charts including GPS charts, 2) have your charts out where you can use them when enjoying Maine’s beautiful midcoast waters, and 3) learn about navigation aids (they’re on the charts and on the water) so you can use them to cruise safely. You can do all three things by taking this class. It is an introduction to navigation using a chart of the Boothbay area.

Learn how to read a chart and become familiar with the coastal waters between Small Point and Pemaquid. Problem sets will help you plan cruises and understand the information found on charts (e.g., buoys, lights, water depth) and to use them while cruising the area. True and magnetic headings, variation, lines of position, chart symbols, piloting, latitude and longitude, and dead reckoning are explained. The Three Rivers chart (#13293) is included. Please bring a pencil and a good eraser to the first class. A parallel ruler and dividers are needed in the first class. If you do not have either charting tool, each can be purchased separately.
