Traditional navigation with its chart plotting, compass errors, and current vectors requires years to master. Serious boaters learn it eventually, but with $100 GPS receivers offering 50-foot position accuracy anywhere in the world, it's no longer necessary to master the art before enjoying the sport.

The Weekend Navigator is the first book to recognize that affordable, simple-to-use electronics demand a radically new approach to teaching navigation. The author lets you find your way on the water immediately.

This innovative guide's quick-reference format shows you how to:
  • Pinpoint locations at all times
  • Determine the precise ranges and bearings of destinations
  • Compensate for wind and current effects
  • Avoid underwater hazards
