Marine Navigation Course starts

January 8, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

Diablo Sail & Power Squadron is pleased to offer the United States Power Squadrons Marine Navigation course. This course is focused on course planning and the successful and safe completion of marine cruises. Reading marine charts and interpretation of aids to navigation will be reviewed. The primary focus, however, will be hands-on course planning and plotting, distance calculations, plotting in TRUE/steering in MAGNETIC, and plotting standards (symbols and notations on charts). All of the manual plotting methods will be compared and contrasted with GPS-based chart plotter methodologies using a software package (OpenCPN) that will be provided to all students.

Where And When: Classes will meet on Wednesday evenings at 7pm at the Martinez Sea Scouts training facility (S.S.S. Albatross Sea Base, Martinez, CA) beginning on 1/8/2020. The class will meet over an eight-week period. This course is open to all squadron members AND non-members.

Contact: For further information or to enroll, please contact Michael Holland SN at or (530)304-4487 (phone or text).
