Navigating Midcoast Maine | Maine Maritime Museum | Tuesday, 10. November 2020

This course is taught by members of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary and serves as an introduction to navigation using The Three Rivers Chart (#13293). This way you’ll become familiar with the coastal waters of our local region between Small Point and Pemaquid before ever setting sail. Students will learn terms such as true and magnetic headings, variation, lines of position, chart symbols, piloting, latitude and longitude, dead reckoning, and aids to navigation and be able to use these skills to safely plan and plot a trip.
This class meets on Tuesday & Thursday evenings starting on November 10 through November 19, 2020 from 6-8 pm.
