paper chart.

Understand latitude and longitude and be able to determine location in those terms. Learn what the compass rose is and the difference between magnetic and true north. Understand what magnetic variation is. Learn to read the Aids to Navigation buoys and how they are represented on a chart. Learn to read how objects on land are represented on a chart.

NAVIGATION: This course teaches the boater how to plot a course, determine location in terms of latitude and longitude. You’ll learn to use the compass rose to determine course direction, take relative bearing sightings and how to label the lines. Learn how to plot a course in both true and magnetic north and convert one to the other. Learn how to calculate boat speed, time and distance on the water. Learn the proper use of dividers, parallel rulers and other plotting tools. An overview of piloting is presented, demonstrating how the effects of wind, current and compass errors can cause a vessel to deviate from a desired course.
