I buy books for my Kindle, Nook, AND Kobo and still buy just as many traditional books.

Sigh.

For books I don't want to keep, I do like being able to download them from the library onto my Kindle without leaving the house.

Re: For Us Female Navigators Out There

Any suggestions about the learning process? Where is a good place to start learning navigation? Thanks!
Nancy

Re: For Us Female Navigators Out There

I'm actually giving a webinar next week entitled "Modern Nautical Navigation on a Budget". Unfortunately I will not be going over celestial navigation (would love to learn that!) but I will be going over how to use the Navionics app, SonarCharts Live, Vexilar units, iPads, etc. The webinar is April 16th at 6pm eastern time. You can register here : https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/reg...09736300579586

I hope you will be able to attend!

Re: For Us Female Navigators Out There

Thanks so much to everyone that joined the webinar last night. If you missed it you'll be able to see the recording soon (as soon as it can get posted) here:
Webinar | Navionics

You can also access the intro powerpoint here:
http://blog.eboatlistings.com/wp-con...-a-Budget.pptx

The intro powerpoint has some videos and links that are useful. However, the bulk of the presentation was demonstrations of the Navionics app on the iPad, which you'll need to view the video to see.

This exactly. When sailing at night it is so important to see which direction your boat is facing, and where exactly you are on the map to be able to tell if you are in small channels. It's also nice to have charts that are updated regularly as a lot of the time where I am things move, and new obstructions are constantly appearing.
