The Art Of Astro-Navigation
Ferg has been brushing up his skipper skills. As part of his ongoing RYA Yachtmaster Ocean qualification, a requirement is to navigate a minimum of 600 nautical-miles, using the ancient art of astro-navigation. This involves ascertaining the boat’s position on the earth’s surface by measuring the angles of the sun, moon, stars and planets. While he’s already passed the theory, this practical exercise will show that he can do it. By following our track when we leave Cape Town on Monday – https://forecast.predictwind.com/tracking/display/TwoDrifters – you’ll be able to see just how close he can get us to the small island of St Helena in the South Atlantic.
