Basic Navigation and Piloting
NB0920_26-27
This two-day class is for everyone from novice to experienced boaters looking for formal training in piloting and navigation. Students receive lecture and hands-on training utilizing charts, plotting tools, government publications and workbook exercises. Upon completion of the class, students are able to plot a course, create a route log, plot their position by various types of fixes, calculate time, speed & distance, and perform set and drift vectors. Participants learn the same techniques used in the plotting module of the USCG deck officer license exam.

Topics:

  • Chart orientation 
  • Use of government publications such as: Tide Tables, Tidal Current Tables, Light List, Coast Pilot, Notice to Mariners, Navigation Rules, Chart No. 1 
  • Plotting positions 
  • Creating routes 
  • Plotting three-bearing fixes, running fixes and electronic fixes 
  • Understanding aids to navigation 
  • Rules of the Road 
  • Trip planning (use of cruising guides, planning fuel stops, etc.) 
  • Dead Reckoning

N20920_28-29
Modern integrated navigation calls for the mariner to blend traditional navigation skills with the use and knowledge of sophisticated networked electronic aids. This two-day (12-hour) class is focused on marrying paper chart navigation with electronic navigation systems, tablets and smart phones. Students will receive lecture, demonstration and hands-on training that utilizes the Annapolis School of Seamanship bridge simulator. The simulator allows students to engage in a virtual voyage in all weather conditions and can interface with tablet based navigation systems such as iNavx.
Students for this class must have previously taken Basic Navigation or have a solid foundation in traditional paper chart navigation and plotting.
Topics:
  • Electronic Navigation Basics 
  • GPS Chartplotter, Radar, and AIS 
  • Relative Motion, Collision Avoidance, ARPA, VRM, and EBL on a radar display 
  • Tablet and phone based navigation using iNavx and other mobile apps 
  • Fully integrated navigation experience using our full-size ship simulator
