The workbook we use in our Home Study Course on Inland and Coastal Navigation is now available to the public.

This book provides over 500 exercises with answers covering all aspects of small-craft navigation. These are practical problems that all navigators should know how to solve. Topics include:
Piloting Chart reading and plotting Voyage planning
Dead reckoning Compass use Waypoint selection
Special publications Rules of the road Route design
Lights and buoys Tides and currents Electronic fixes
Depth sounding navigation
The level of the exercises is about that used in the USCG 100-Ton masters exam, which in turn is about the same used in the navigation certification programs of US Sailing, ASA, CYA and RYA. These practice problems are, however, designed to be practical and instructive, not just training exercises for certification exams. This Workbook is used by several navigation schools around the country.
Selections are provided from each of these special publications along with exercises to insure their full use is mastered:
Tide Tables Current Tables US Coast Pilot
USCG Light List USCG Notices to Mariners
The exercises that require a chart use nautical training chart No. 18465tr, available at reduced price from NOAA chart dealers, or by telephone from NOAA at (800) 638-8972, or by online order at or
You can also work the chart problems with an electronic chart (Raster Navigation Chart, RNC) number 18465, available at no charge as a download from The echart can be viewed by any of several free echart viewer programs listed in this book. You can also use any full echart navigation program of your choice. We encourage navigators to solve the chart problems with both traditional paper plotting as well as electronically, using electronic bearing lines and range rings.

The organization of the exercises follows the chapter structure of our text Inland and Coastal Navigation, but other textbooks can also be used for background and reference.
