In ''Celestial Navigation'', veteran yachtsman Tom Cunliffe, reveals how any boat owner can master this seafaring technique, without complex mathematics, using his simplified approach. Readers begin with a sound foundation of basic concepts and definitions, before moving on to the hardware-the sextant and how to use it. Within a few pages, you''ll be working out your latitude from a noon sight, and learning how to plot a position from observing the sun, planets, moon or stars-orwherever you may be on the world''s oceans.
