At last! An enjoyable and painless way to learn the art of celestial navigation. William F. Buckley, Jr., working primarily with the sunsight, gives you his own step-by-step procedure for navigation: a vintage distillation of his 35 years of sailing experience (including Atlantic crossings).

Artfully designed computer graphics illustrate and clarify each step on the way, making this one of the best and easiest learning programs ever devised for such a complex subject.
