Navigating Midcoast Maine
June 4, 2018 - June 13, 2018
Cruising the coastal waters of Maine can be fun, especially when you know how to read a nautical chart so you miss all those rocks and arrive safely at your destination. This course serves as an introduction to navigation using The Three Rivers Chart (#13293) so you'll become familiar with the coastal waters of our local region between Small Point and Pemaquid. You'll learn the basics about the information found on nautical charts, identifying navigation aids so you can use them to cruise safely. Students will learn about true and magnetic headings, variation, lines of position, chart symbols, piloting, latitude and longitude, and dead reckoning.
This course is taught by members of the U.S Coast Guard Auxiliary.
The Three Rivers chart (#13293) and a copy of a chapter on navigation principles are included. A parallel ruler and dividers are needed and can be purchased separately at our Museum Store.
This class meets on Monday & Wednesday evenings starting on June 4, 2018 through June 13, 2018 from 6:00-8:00pm.
Members $80; nonmembers $100
