THIS IS A NON-ASA class.
Do you want to know how to navigate?
Do you want to always know where you are?
Do you want to learn how to use a compass, chart and plot a course?
Our Navigation Classes are held at West Coast Multihulls’ Main Office.
As well as instruction and training on navigation techniques and strategy, each student attending the class will receive the following equipment as part of the course:
Protractor Triangle with Handle.
$80.00 Approx Value, Yours FREE
These navigation tools are the SAME tools I use in my navigation. You do not need parallel plotters (walkers). These are not cheap (get-you-by) tools that you can find in a box of Cracker Jacks but REAL daily-use navigation tools.
You will need to bring with you blank paper and pencils / eraser
The class will cover all aspects of basic navigation.
