Re: Navigators: The Sextant you own and have a License?
This old thread showed up at the bottom of one on traditional navigation.
i thought the original question interesting though irellevent to my current recreational sailing. my licence an old 2nd mate FGN expired decades ago with STCW 95 and continued proficency.
A pristine Frieberger. also an old Tayama not in good shape
I never used to carry my own relying on the ships.
My favourite was a Ziess. the Frieberger is the same.
I used Cooks, Plaths Kelivin hughes and Tayamas. I used a Davis and was not impressed. Spoiled by good ones.
Never used an Astra.
Ps canad has its own system and does not use RYA although there is a couple of schools who teach RYA I think there is one in Florida as well
