I just read my recent Mystic Seaport Bulletin and there was a very
successful “adventure series” afternoon and evening lecture
recently.....265 people in the afternoon and 290 people in the evening.
I’ve been to a couple of these and they are excellent. Usually the speaker
presents the talk for an hour or so and answers questions for another 30
minutes. Free coffee and donuts!
Because people are so busy, would a briefer lecture combined with some “
hands-on” be more popular? How about an afternoon or evening time slot??

Exotic topics to think about : Artificial horizons, dip short, backsights,
daytime Venus, ultra high altitude GP circle of position, and sunrise/sunset LOP
without a sextant. Something really far out would be longitude by jovian moons
which could be an extra subject for the land navigation class.
