John Croft is giving a series of training seminars on how to use the sextant at Richmond Yacht Club on the Westhaven Seawall during June.

These seminars have been organised and are sponsored by CANANZ and are open to CANANZ and RYC members (free of charge).

They start with the regular CANANZ meeting on Monday 12 June –

RYC doors open 7:30pm and tuition is from 7:45pm and finished by 9:45pm

Bring along your own Sight Reduction Tables (available from Boat Books) and something to write on/with and “a good attitude”.

John Croft thinks there may be a need for two more meetings.

Nights set aside for these are Wed 21 June and Monday 26 June.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Mon 12 June

Let me know if you have any queries
