Format: Paperback
I was a little surprised to find the first 56 pages are a repeat of Tom's earlier 'Celestial Navigation', which is easy to follow even in monochrome. The colour version in this book is easier on the eye. The descriptive sections on Deep Water Meteorology and The Ocean Passage are well written and informative. You only need buy one of these two books. If you have neither and are looking for a book on sextant use, buy Ocean Sailing.

It is an amazing book that covers from the very first begining in the theory of celestial navigation . It goes to the essentials points, but it is good if you have already a background in navigation. There are a few exercises to explain the theory, that is very clearly explained but it is also necessary another book to complete the practice .For me, it has been a very good option to review the theory.

A good overview of celestial nav that will orientate you before a class room course or refresh you afterwards. Not a huge amount of detail on weather and passage planning but I guess you are supposed to know most of this stuff by the time you come to YM Ocean!
