« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Piloting is the first of the Navigational classes presented by the Waukegan Sail & Power Squadron under the auspices of the U. S. Power Squadrons focusing on techniques for piloting a boat in coastal and inland conditions. The course emphasizes planning and checking along with the use of GPS for determining position and introduces digital charting along with traditional charting, compass, and Dead Reckoning skills. Plotting, labeling, use of the compass, aids to navigation and a host of related topics are included in this all-new approach to coastal and inland piloting. The Student Kit includes not only the Student Manual, the Plotting & Labeling Guide, but also instructions for downloading, installing, and using OpenCPN, a marine navigation program that is state-of-the-art and in wide use by commercial and recreational boaters. A $9 fee will be required at time of registration. Fee for members of USPS is $78 - paid in class. Fee for non-members is $96, which includes a one year membership - also paid in class.
