    With no street names, no stop signs, no Wendys or CVS to

    mark the left-hand turn on a 20 mile journey on the water, how

    do we get there? While traversing to our destination, the

    skipper and crew have to pay close attention to oncoming

    traffic, channel markers, and the weather, and must always be

    on the lookout for flotsam! There really isnt time to be

    looking down at charts and figuring out what various symbols

    mean. Plotting your course is done before the engine is started.

    Our next two program meetings on July 21st and August 18th

    will begin to unravel the mystery of how your Skippers find

    that little tiny rock surrounded by water on all sides. My first

    40 years of sailing, all I did was race from buoy to buoy, or sail

    to destinations as far as the eye could see. I could read a chart,

    but I couldnt navigate at all. The more I learned about

    navigating the waterways, the more new sailing opportunities

    opened up to me.

    How to Plot a Course will teach the traditional, true-

    variation-magnetic method (no compass deviation). You will

    also learn parallel rules and roller plotters.

    Attendees can purchase materials or bring their own. Materials

    for sale include:

    How to Read A Nautical Chart by Nigel Calder ($14)

    Maptech Waterproof Chart Symbol Guide ($20)

    Weekend Navigator, 2nd Edition ($25)

    Dividers (Weem and Plath) ($12 each)

    USPS Course Plotter ($7)

    Miscellaneous other small textbooks.

    Hope to see you there! Terry Cotterall-Lagana

    Submitted by Capt. Joe DeFranco

    Assigned to night watch one night on an

    extended vacation sail in the Gulf of Maine,

    you see a vessel with the light pattern shown

    above approaching you. (a) What kind of

    vessel is it? (b) Which of you is the give way

    vessel? (c) What special caution should you

    give the helm?

    POP QUIZ

    (a) A commercial fishing vessel engaged in fishing

    (not trawling). Instead of a white masthead

    light, this power-driven vessel is required to

    display an all around red light above an all

    around white light (Red Over White, Were

    Fishing Tonight). Since shes making way, red

    and green side marker lights must also be

    displayed

    (b) Youre the give way vessel whether youre

    sailing, motor-sailing, or motoring and must stay

    clear of the fishing vessel according to

    Navigation Rules.

    (c) The all-around white light on the port side of the

    mast-mounted red and white lights indicates that

    the vessel has outlying fishing gear extending

    over 150 meters horizontally from her port side.

    It would be prudent to pass her starboard to

    starboard.
