Old-school celestial navigation

"Simply put, itís worth learning because it remains the ultimate non-electronic navigational tool. The common perception is celestial navigation is too complicated for the average yachtsman. Although it requires commitment, itís easier than you might think. If you know a few basics, such as finding the noon sight, finding the sun sight and using a sextant, youíll have enough tools to determine your location."
