Visual Navigation

23 March 2017
There is yet another cold front rolling through so we are holed up in Man of War Cay for a couple of days while the wind is gusting to 40 knots. This cay, established in the 1700s, is home to a very industrious community which includes boat builders, sailmakers and carpenters. There is also a well known marina and boat yard that many cruising sailors recommend for repairs or maintenance. Hopefully, we'll be on our way in a day or two for some more exploring before we start preparing the boat for the trip north.

Before we left on our trip last year we upgraded our navigation system aboard Dagny by adding a Garmin GPS chartplotter. While this piece of equipment has worked flawlessly and the chart package we bought is very accurate, there are other forms of navigation to be practiced.
