    • Modern Celestial Navigation: October 18-19, 2014. An easy introduction to sextants and celestial sights, latitude by Noon Sun, navigation apps and calculator methods, position fix by observing artificial satellites, and compass bearing by Sun and stars.
    • Celestial Navigation: 19th Century Methods: November 1-2, 2014. An introduction to sextants and celestial sights from a historical perspective, focusing on the actual logbook entries and navigational calculations from Mystic Seaport's famous 1841 whaleship, the Charles W.
