    Cruise Ship CN

    Aboard the cruise ship Coral Princess. Log of CN nubie at sea with a sextant for the first time.  Thanks, all the wonderful CN experts for your  helpful advice

    For various lame reasons, I was only able to accomplish the following

    Understand my Mark 3 plastic sextant

    Experience the  thrill of bringing the Sun to the horizon.

    With the help of my iphone apps, was able to

    Determine that the Sun was in the correct position in the sky

    Or the ship was indeed where it was.

    Eliminated a myriad of positions that the ship was not at.

    Seriously, What a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to continue my studies
