Sextant Training Course

Recommended Posts

John Croft is giving a series of training seminars on how to use the sextant at Richmond Yacht Club during June.

These seminars have been organised and are sponsored by CANANZ and are open to CANANZ and RYC members (free of charge).

They start with the regular CANANZ meeting on Monday 12 June

RYC doors open 7:30pm and tuition is from 7:45pm and finished by 9:45pm

Bring along your own Sight Reduction Tables (available from Boat Books)

and something to write on/with

and “a good attitude”.


John Croft thinks there may be a need for two more meetings.

Nights set aside for these are Wed 21 June and Monday 26 June.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Mon 12 June


Let me know if you have any queries

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 and video tapes. We hold three weekend cruises around the Hauraki Gulf annually, and send a regular newsletter to all members.  More information: www.cananz.org.nz
