    Re: Golden Globe Race Navigation
    From: Gary LaPook

    f weekly radio time checks can be performed then a good mechanical wrist watch or clock that is rated would work for CN purposes. The Golden Globe Race is an 8 month race so time checks made by radio ( SW, SSB or speaking a ship by VHF ) could become unavailable for many reasons. The quartz watch would be a very inexpensive safety option for continuing the race should the SW/SSB go down.  Something for the GGR racing committee to think about.
