    Gary asked-
    | I am just getting started in Celestial as my wife and I plan on
    | some blue water cruising in about 3 yrs.  Currently we are in st.
    | and sail our Catalina 27 on Carlyle.  I am not sure if this is the
    | place for a beginner to be judging from the topics I have looked
    | through.  I currently am working through Tom Tursi's ASA 106 book as
    | well as "A Star to Steer Her By"  Is this a place where I can ask
    | beginner questionsas I look to learn this discipline?  I am by no
    | a math wiz or astro physicist.
    Welcome aboard, Gary, and ask away. You may be diffident to start with
    but will gain in confidence. Some old-hands on this list learned about
    it in just the same way, by asking questions of the list, and plugging
    away until they understood the answers.
    Don't simply accept everything you are told. Some of us get things
    wrong, me included, and tend to be brought up sharp by a correction
    from a more perceptive list-member. So keep a questioning attitude.
    And we have at least one other Gary, so to avoid confusion you would
    do well to add another initial to your name.
