This second edition of the best-selling RYA Navigation Handbook is essential reading for anyone taking to the water and looking for the complete guide to navigation.

Navigation techniques and practices have changed dramatically over the years and today, many sailors and motor boaters regard electronic instruments as their principal means of navigation. However, traditional methods still have an important part to play, as does knowledge of aspects such as tides, lights, buoys and beacons.

This new edition has been redesigned with that in mind; to provide the reader with a sound understanding of the principals of navigation as well as providing insight into the ways in which electronic navigation can be used to best effect.

This book will help to ensure the development of a ‘well rounded’ and competent navigator.

Tim Bartlett is one of the country’s leading experts on navigation. Tim learnt to navigate as part of his professional training at Dartmouth Naval College and then since leaving the navy has become the Technical Editor of Motor Boat and Yachting magazine.
