This video is a basic introduction to sea charts. We will go through how to read depths and bridge heights, plot magnetic and true courses from the compass rose using a parallel ruler and how to measure distance in nautical miles. In particular detail is information on converting from magnetic to true and from true to magnetic. This is on of the fundamental skills required for coastal navigation.

Coastal areas are well surveyed and often re-surveyed because seafloor conditions continuously change, especially close to shore.

** GET THE GEAR ON AMAZON** https://www.amazon.com/shop/jimcyr This quick video shows you how you can use your GPS to find your position on a Topo map using the UTM / NAD 83 format & datum. There is a LOT to learn about map reading which is useful when your GPS fails. Anybody with tips can post them as video replies or comments. When using your GPS in conjunction with a topo map, is to make sure that Datum is the same on the GPS as on your map. For example, out of the box GPS receivers are set to WGS84 while most topo maps are probably NAD83. This is important to set since it will make a different where you are on the map. The next setting to change is the position format. Depending on the age of the map, it will be using UTM number format instead of GPS friendly lat/log format. Position format is much like a phone number, you can write it in various ways, but they all mean the same thing. Now you can take a set of coordinates from the GPS, either grab a waypoint, look up a phototagged image. Here we want to get the position where we are and where we want to go, like a visitor centre. Write down the UTM coordinates on to a piece of paper. Take the corner of the piece of paper and mark out the scale, using UTM each tick on a grid is divisible by 10. So you can take each digit in a UTM and narrow down on the map by 100m in this example. #avoidingchores

I have found for the same price or a tiny bit cheaper I could get an iPad WITH Navionics and I would have all the functionality of the iPad and not be limited to just the sole purpose of a GPS.

Although we spend a lot of time training on or in the water, we also make time to share some theoretical experience with the team. This time we’re talking about navigation and everything that comes with it. Again, we get to use the Bella Vista hall in the Westhoek Marina so a big thanks for the chairman Philippe! We started by giving an introduction, we spoke of the tides and how and why they occur and the influence it gives for us, sea kayakers. We prefer to start with basics, and slowly build up to the point that everyone can swiftly plot a course to steer, even with taking tidal streams in account. This video is in no way a training or instructional video, it’s just a way of showing how we do things in our NORTHSEAKAYAK team. Sea kayak navigation is very interesting, it’s great fun discovering the many small but important data a sea chart provides us. See you on the water!! Paddle safe!

Speaker: Bernhard Fischer Safe navigation with the aid of an open sea chart. In maritime shipping accurate positioning is vital to preserve damage to life, ship, and goods. Today, we might tend to think that this problem is sufficiently solved yet because of the existence of electronic positioning systems like, most notably, the Global Positioning System (GPS) or the Russian counterpart GLONASS. This is wrong. Positions in terms of latitude and longitude just make sense together with an accurate sea chart (and of course, together with a navigator that is able to translate charting data into reality). Sea charts are available of national geospatial agencies and business companies as hard-copy or as digital maps and dependent on costs one might spend they are more or less accurate. In today's open world the idea of making an open sea chart is obvious. Several projects now started to apply the rules used for the OpenStreetMap, "...a free editable map of the whole world." (http://www.openstreetmap.org/), to create a free editable sea chart of the whole world and it turns out to be much more difficult because of potential serious consequences in case of charting errors. A sea chart contains a lot of vital information to a navigator. It has to be accurate, up to date, and confidential. Since we (the open sea chart community) cannot just chart every navigational important item on the world we are dependent on information that was already charted before or on third-party information. The latter could be for example measurements or GPS tracks of people that are somehow involved into maritime shipping but not necessarily into details of marine mapping. Thus, data accuracy may be questionable but still valuable. The fact that unauthenticated people are editing data in an open database is a big challenge for an open community since safety and security of life heavily depends on it. This talk covers the basic principles of sea charts and marine mapping. It emphasizes the problems of an open sea chart in general and its distinction to an open street map since requirements to ensure safety at sea are very different. Data preparation and import of other sources are discussed in detail, mainly focused on lights and depths. The lecture will connect real world shortcomings to a pedantic definite IT world for an IT-oriented audience and approaches IT security from a different angle.

A practical pirate's life is not without its share of dangers. The sun-drenched shores that dot the horizon may seem tranquil and inviting, but it's never wise to let your guard down for long. Whether or not you choose to seek out confrontation during your adventures, an understanding of what awaits you can mean the difference between treasure and tragedy… The setting of Sea of Thieves is an untamed pirate frontier. Fit to burst with far-flung destinations, inspiring vistas and stirring sunsets, this world is portrayed in a distinctive painterly art style that brings out the best in its roguish residents and most deplorable denizens – not to mention some seriously #GreatWater befitting all kinds of epic high seas adventures. Raise anchor and set sail for far shores and hidden hoards. Whatever destiny a traveller on the Sea of Thieves chooses to follow, it begins with exploration. This ever-changing ocean realm is rich in islands, each curled protectively around its secrets, and outposts where hauls are cashed and tankards bashed with friends and strangers alike. Social play on the seas in a new kind of multiplayer game. Co-operation is your watchword in Sea of Thieves. The events you experience and the memories you make become the stuff of legend with friends in tow. Bring a ready-made crew or discover new partners in plunder, bonding under the Pirates' Code. Prefer to sail solo as you earn your sea legs? You can do that too! Forge your own identity and set out to rack up renown. You'll begin your journey across the Sea of Thieves as a ragtag wanderer ready to complete voyages, form bonds with other pirates and amass your very own hoard. Whether you prefer to sail solo or as part of an adventure-hungry crew, you'll soon find yourself on the way to becoming a stone cold pirate legend.
