As a complete novice to sailing and marine navigation, I found this book easy to follow, with useful examples of the principles involved. The book also covers such things as tides, how to read charts and there are also chapters devoted to electronic naviation.

This is an excellent book covering the topics of Charts, Position fixing,Tides and Pilotage very well suited me as an absolute beginner and does well for those with very much more experience and is an excellent aid memoire.Contains lots of tips and worked examples for charting and tide assessment.
However a later edition (2003) is just as good and goes into electronics more so I recommend that

I have studied Day skipper, Coastal skipper and Yachtmaster theory courses as distance learning. This book has not quite been a bible during these courses, but it has been an excellent learning aid. I referred back to it on many occasions during the courses and the lay out of the book and the manner in which it is written, makes it very simple to pick up and refer to any section without the need to track back through previous chapters for referenced sections.

I purchased this as a supplement to a number of navigation books I needed for the Navigation course I attended and now passed.
The information in this book is great. All the fundamentals of navigation is described well and in a simple manner to easily understand.

My father is finding it really useful, just what he wanted to brush up on his navigation and continue learning.

I LOVE tim bartlett's work, and his theories on economics and philosophy are almost as fascinating as this careful treatment of navigation and yachting. altho i am aware that the book deals with navigation in a strictly physical sense, i cannot avoid thinking that Bartlett also directs the reader spiritually as well.
