Overview

The Adlard Coles Book of Navigation is aimed at anyone with an interest in navigating small craft,but particularly at those working towards RYA Day Skipper, Yachtmaster,Motor Cruising or Advanced Powerboat certificates, or attending the RYARadar course.

Electronics have gained such widespread acceptance over the lastdecade that even a modest family cruiser is likely to have anelectronic navigation capability comparable with that of a smallwarship of twenty years ago. Using plain English to strip away thejargon, this book sets out to demystify the technology behind modernmarine electronics, and to explain how the various systems work and howto get the best out of the equipment available.

The Adlard Coles Book of Electronic Navigation is set to become the definitive book on the subject.
