Learn About Sextants - CANANZ

Recommended Posts

An introduction to the Sextant and Celestial Navigation, presented by John Croft, Mariner, Scientist, Yachtsman, Navigator and Coastguard Tutor will be the feature of the next CANANZ meeting.  All welcome - free of charge.


Details: Monday 13th June 7:30pm at Richmond Yacht Club, Westhaven.  The library and the bar will be open.


If there is sufficient interest, we are planning to arrange an opportunity at a later date to take sextant sights and perform sight reduction.

CANANZ was established in 1978 before the advent of GPS. We hold meetings on the 2nd Monday of each even month, usually at Richmond Yacht Club, Westhaven starting at 1930 hrs. We feature a speaker who presents their recent expedition, some aspect of yachting, navigation, meteorology, or a related topic. Members may borrow from our library of 400 books as well as specialist magazines, audio tapes and DVDs. We hold two weekend cruises around the Hauraki Gulf annually, and send a regular newsletter to all members. More information and member's newsletter: http://cananz.org.nz
