Navigation #2


This is the second in a series of emails in preparation for PC2016.

It consists of a series of challenges that I hope you will all take seriously.
  • Next time you are on the boat learn how to turn on the GPS and bring up a chart showing your current position.
  • Then learn how to push the "Man Overboard" button.
  • Then learn how to determine the compass direction back to the "Man Overboard"
  • Then determine the lat-lon of the "Man Overboard" point.
  • Then try pushing the button again (starting out from the cockpit) with your eyes closed.
  • Finally, send me an email describing the process and any problems that occurred.
