ASA Navigation Manual

While for years I've confessed to being crazy (even foolish) about sailing I have decided I need to be certified...so I'm taking a few ASA instructor programs...any chance anyone has a copy of the ASA Coastal Navigation Solutions Workbook and DVD and might be willing to part with it?

I haven't posted enough to send a PM.

I have the ASA nav materials if you are still looking for them. The book, solution manual, and DVD that I have are the Tom Tursi ones from a couple of years ago. Let me know if you are still interested, and I can send them out to you.

Mike

Is that who ASA is using now for their nav course, or does it vary by school?

I believe, although I am not sure, alot of people were unhappy with the Tursi book. Since Pyzel came out with a new book last year and is better than his older one (which was fantastic), some schools may be using the Pyzel book--I am not sure though.
