Sea Kayak Navigation: The Black Art Demystified

Front Cover
Pesda, Feb 1, 1999 - Transportation - 62 pages
At last a book that tells you only what you need to know and cuts out the confusing nonsense! Clear, concise and illustrated throughout with excellent diagrams and drawings.The aim of this book is to provide a concise manual of navigation aimed specifically at sea kayakers. It covers what sea kayakers need to know and are likely to use; no more, no less. I have decided not to include a glossary as all the terms are explained in the book. To that end there is a comprehensive index.The ultimate test of whether or not the lessons have been absorbed is the first time you plan and execute a trip relying on your own navigation. Take precautions: Plan simple trips, and aim for big targets to start with. Get someone more experienced to check your calculations. Always take into account the weather forecast. Base your planning on the abilities of the weakest members of your group. Build up slowly. Enjoy the book and enjoy your paddling
