Jeff Toghill makes the complex subject of celestial navigation simple enough for even the most non-mathematically minded sailor.
This indispensible guide provides plenty of detail, including: - how to plot position by sun, planets and stars - taking radio time signals - adjusting the sextant for day-to-day corrections as well as advances in electronic navigation.
Jeff Toghill (1932-2017) was the author of more than 60 books and wrote extensively for magazines, television and radio. He explored the city bush of Sydney on foot for more than 30 years. As a yacht master and marine consultant he had a lifelong passion for the unique city of Sydney and its harbour.
