Navigation lights can be hard to pick out against shore clutter but will show up with careful scrutiny, double check their colors and sequences against the chart.
As part of passage planning I have my students identify the characteristics of any light they expect to see. The Light List is a more comprehensive source of information.
This is the form we use.
