Dear navigator and sailor I hope, that next chapters of my web site will help you to do the right position on the map during the sea voyage. I hope that you will learn to count and to quote ships head for steersman and later to put that information in a log-book. However remember, that very knowledge a navigation isn't everything...
"(...) The navigation consists on safe leading the yacht of the around one place into second , what comes down to determining one's place on water, answering a question 'where we are'. However a role of the map or GPS are being overrated unjustly in this respect, whether generally of estimating the position. It is possible to know one's coordinates, well are shown on the screen, but if only to plot them on a map are a bit of a time needed. And need the time more to making oneself aware still how it has itself to our real situation at sea. This time can be being enough to driving onto the shoal or laying itself wide open up to the ship swimming up. Therefore keeping the vigilance aboard is more important because a common sense rather than a profound knowledge can before the disaster sometimes save us navigational.

So the problem there with which is a navigation comes down to solving two objectives this way: of locating the yacht and marking the real course out.
Outside above ways of locating the yacht at sea, a radio navigation and a radar and met rarely in sailing inert navigation still exist.
The course is divided in chapters for the navigation far:
