Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book does a good job at explaining most of the basics concepts of navigation. It covers all elements of navigation in simple language which is easy enough for an interested novice to understand. However, it would prove to be insufficient to support anyone who is studying to pass his/her shorebased Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster exam. Whilst the book illustrates most of the concepts which are discussed, there are too few practical examples which allow the reader to test his/her understanding. There are also a lot of references to the use of radar for navigation which is a bit of overkill. The book is clearly written at the level of a novice to navigation and it would have been more helpful to explore the basic concepts with more depth rather than confuse the readers with references to the use of radar, a navigation tool they are unlikely to use any time soon. All in all, a good book to read before following a shore based RYA course, but of little value to anyone who understands the basics of navigation.

5.0 out of 5 stars RYA: Navigation Handbook 3 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
You NEED this book if you have a boat, if you are planning to work at sea, if you are going to do the Yachtmaster exam (theroy and practical), if you are a crew member, if you are going to do an OOW (officer of the watch) oral exam or simply just because you living by the Sea !!
Good book to review all the coastal navigation. Always buy together with the Navigation Exercises book to test your skills. One of the MUST have book.

5.0 out of 5 stars RYA Navigation 6 May 2010
Format:Paperback
An excellent book covering all you need to know for the RYA Day Skipper course and exam. Its well written and logically laid out with worked examples to illustrate the points being made. I'd also recommend buying the Navigation exersises so that you can put into practice what you've just learnt in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars RYA Navigation Handbook - Highly Recomended 9 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
I have just finished reading this excellent book and would highly recommend it. All aspects of marine navigation (with the exception of Astro Nav. that the author covers in a seperate book) are comprehensively covered in an easy to read manner. Another quality RYA product, well thought out and fully deserving of 5 stars! I have seen numerous other books on marine navigation and this is the best.
