Description

Why take the Ocean Course when we have the GNSS, Global Navigations Satelite System to hand.

21st Century Navigation is vulnerable to GPS failure. Hackers might penetrate the system, terrorists might jam the signal, solar storms might take out satellites or, more likely, your own onboard systems could fail. Exactly this happened to our school principal after a lightning strike.

The ultimate backup is a sextant, accurate timepiece, nautical almanac and a set of, what are known as “sight reduction tables”. However whilst the process of translating a sextant sight into a position line is straightforward it is quite challenging to get to grips with. Unlike classroom training, where time is limited and students progress at different rates, online learning allows you to participate in lessons as many times as you wish. rewind and replay. You can also repeat exercises and, if you struggle to get to the correct answer, we’ll guide you through step-by-step.
