Description

BWS's regular columnist David Burch is the founder and president of Starpath Navigation in

Seattle, Washington. A Fellow of the U.S. Institute of Navigation and the Royal Institute of

Navigation, he has spent his career writing about and instructing mariners and sailors in the art

and science of navigation. His book Celestial Navigation has recently been updated and reissued

in a second edition. Although the original text was complete, Burch has been able to expand and

improve the book both graphically and contextually. Designed to be a home study course in

celestial navigation , the book takes you from the very basics of how to use a sextant to the most

advanced calculations. The beauty of celestial navigation is the self reliance the skill provides

sailors at sea. If you have a reliable time piece and a way to check time with a battery powered

shortwave radio, you can determine your position on your own anywhere at sea. So, if you are

days from landfall and struck by lightning, which shorts out all of your electronics, you can still

make harbor safely and in a timely way using only the sun, moon and stars as your guide.Celestial

navigation also links us with ancient mariners who first sailed across oceans and created the

world's discovery and trading routes. These intrepid sailors were intimately familiar with the natural

world around them and the significance in the earth's movement in the solar system and galaxy.

Instead of sailing with heads down staring at LED screens, they sailed with eyes uplift ed to the

sky, which is not a bad way to see the world. Celestial navigation is not hard. Using Burch's book

as a guide, you will learn how to take and calculate noon sights, morning and afternoon sun sights,

twilight moon sights and the classic dawn and evening star sights. You'll figure out how to use a

nautical almanac and sight reductions tables so you can make the simple calculations. You will

Learn how to use a universal plotting sheet to create lines of position , running fixes and the

valuable 'cocked hats' derived from three or more star sights. And, you will learn about the

heavens. You will come to know the sun and moon in ways you never did before. You will learn to

identify the brighter planets and tell them apart and to identify the primary navigation stars and the

constellations they reside in . Along the way, you will know your place in the world a little better,

both literally when at sea and figuratively every time you stargaze on a brilliant summer night. --Â

Bluewater Sailing Magazine, July 2015'...the second edition of a home study course that Burch


has created that enables students to learn nor just the theory, but the practice of sight reduction

and plotting.Burch is one of those really smart people who has a complete grasp of things

celestial. He knows, as all good teachers know, how to communicate information in a manner that

is not didactic, leading the student over the intellectual hurdles to confidence and , one h
