    Piloting and Navigation

    Two classes - must attend both. First class is February 24. Second class is scheduled for March 3. Registering here accounts for both.

    Piloting involves navigating a vessel in restricted waters and fixing its position as precisely as possible at frequent intervals. Team PSC will help you learn, among other things, lines of position, dead reckoning, ranges, estimated positions, running fixes, and danger bearings. This is a two day class and is part of the ASA 105 certification. 

    Participants must have a "Nav Kit" for this course.  If you do not have your own, for registrations occurring before February 11, you can order a kit through us at a reduced cost of $45. This is a significant saving from purchasing these items on your own. This kit includes: 

    (1)  6" fixed point dividers (item #262),

    (2)  nautical slide rule (item #105), and

    (3)  compact parallel plotter (item #60)

    Lead instructor: Ross Rosiak 

    Members may use one (1) FVSM for this class. Please check the FVSM spreadsheet to make sure you have FVSM(s) available before choosing this pricing option.
