Sailing Crew Class Resources–Fall 2011

Below are a few links to help the students in the Fall Sailing Crew Class that I helped with.  Links are provided to the Nav. Problems, handouts and additional information on charts, links to PowerPoint presentations and additional practice problems and resources for beginning boaters.


  • Introduction to U.S. Aids to Navigation A short illustrated introduction to the U.S. Aids to Navigation System with pictures of Aids to Navigation (ATON’s) from the Seattle area.
  • Introduction To U.S. Aids to Navigation – Examples from Shilshole Bay, Puget Sound – This is a narrated PowerPoint introduction  to U.

  • Introduction-to-Marine-Charts-Part 1 – A short PowerPoint Introduction to Marine Charts showing different scales and explains some basic information that is found on a chart and a few hints on what to look for on a chart and points out some often overlooked tidbits that will help make your boating safer.
