Event Description: Advanced Marine Navigation (currently Advanced Piloting) is the second part of the inland and coastal navigation series. This material builds on the base developed in Piloting, and includes practical use of additional electronic navigation systems and other advanced techniques for finding position. It is such a change from the old AP course, it will be worthwhile for those already having taken AP to tune their skills with this new course. Among topics covered are: finding position using bearings, collision avoidance using GPS and Radar, what to do when the electronics fail, tides, currents and wind and their effect on piloting, electronic navigation with GPS, chart plotters, Radar.
