Re: Circumnavigation without instruments

To repeat: I agree with all the comments supporting the greatest possible degree of independence when navigating. As a Great Lakes sailor, I have learned (I think) all methods except... the sextant... However, the ready availability of all our new gizmos does give me pause, and lately I make a more determined effort to rely less on them. I won't throw them overboard, though!
