The Nautical Institute: The Principles of Navigation
The Admiralty Manual of Navigation Volume 1
This comprehensive reference lays the foundation for safe and effective navigation at sea. It contains everything the navigator needs to plan a passage from berth to berth, including pilotage, coastal navigation, ocean passages and anchorages.
The fundamental principles of navigation developed over centuries of experience in the Royal Navy have been applied to the ECDIS era so that this new edition is 'digital by default'. Navigation aids such as radar, GPS and echo sounder are explained, as are lights, buoys and charting. Suggested bridge organisations are included, which can be tailored for use in almost any ship.
