I don't think any of us old romantics are seriously suggesting we do a Chichester as per 1931(he was crazy even then). I never go anywhere on my boat without multiple GPS back-ups, but just like to play with astro, celnav and the old Chichester stuff like Bygraves etc. In an emergency, the GPS rules.
Anyways, this recent thread on precomputed Hps is fascinating and I intend to try it out on my next boat trip to Scillies. I've already worked out my "waypoints" with the Bygrave and will now also test the Brown-Nassau.
