    Andrés,

    I am amused by your comment

    >> depending on the navigation area is mandatory in the EU to have [a sextant] as a safety equipment <<

    Not a EU regulation. Yes, Spanish boats (and only those) must carry a sextant, and only if they go out farther than 60 nm. But there is no mandate to carry an almanac. So, what is this sextant for?

    By contrast, on a French boat one may opt either for a sextant or for a GPS when sailing en haute mer, which for that purpose already starts at six miles from the coast! Doesn't this seem to be a somewhat more realistic approach towards boat safety?
