Our friends at the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Milford Flotilla are offering the Charts, Navigation and GPS course on Saturday, July 20.

The course ties together electronic navigation and the method of plotting a course on a paper chart. Instructions on basic satellite navigation (GPS) and its functions are presented, as well as pros and cons of relying on electronic navigation devices. Students will be instructed how to interpret and use information printed on charts as well as chart a course using that information and navigation tools. Cost: $60.

For advanced registration prior to the class date, go to http://a0142403.uscgaux.info/. The USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 24-3 Training Center is located at 1 Helwig Street, Milford, CT, which is located one block north of Milford Boat Works.   Walk-ins are welcome on day of the Class.
