Why Celestial Navigation?
"A good discipline to establish involves turning off the GPS for extended periods of time (except for periodic checks), and navigating celestially. This hones navigational skills, yields the desired DR track, verifies correct GPS operation, and keeps your back-up system tuned, verified, and ready to rely on if needed. Your reward will be a well kept chart and log, an understanding of the forces affecting your passage, and pride in navigational accomplishment."
