Weekend Navigator Course
Saturday-Sunday, March 7-8 | 9 am - 3 pm each day
The basic portion of the weekend navigator class is designed to teach the student the rudiments of navigation by using GPS, and to have the backup skills of navigation using charts, navigation plotting tools and dead reckoning. The intent is to provide the student with a solid foundation with emphasis on technique and not blind reliance on electronics. GPS will be mentioned and discussed as it relates to plotting waypoints etc. The advanced portion of the course covers the use of GPS and other electronic devices in more technical detail as well as some more sophisticated traditional navigation skills as backups. This is a 2-day class from 9 am to 3 pm, the fee is $50 for one person or $60 for a couple sharing materials . There is limited seating available so please contact instructor Bill Anderson to sign up (619) 922-0231 .
Cooking On Your Boat
Wednesday, March 18 | 7 pm
Cooking on a boat is different from cooking ashore. There are smaller counters, storage spaces, stoves, and refrigerators. The water and power supplies are limited. You may not have a lot of provisions on hand and there's no grocery store around the corner. But that doesn't mean that you can't have great meals! Learn effective ways to meet the challenges and turn out delicious everyday meals without being a galley slave. Don Johnson from the South Bay Sailing Association .
