You might make the short drive to Mystic Seaport for one of their courses, either easy introductory CN or modern CN, taught by our very own Frank Reed, who coordinates NavList.

Unless I catch "the bug" I am only interested in the marine navigational basics as a backup to electronic equipment in case of failure or I end up in a position similar to Robert Redford...
Bruce, Thanks for the information. I am looking forward to learning the basics.
Noell, Sound advice....the idea is to be able to always find your way home. Thanks.
Bob II, I just finished an interesting short book titled "Southeast of Montauk" by Stuart Heywood. He describes a solo trip to Bermuda in a small sailboat that is struck by lightning and must rely on celestial navigation to find the island. This is what sparked my interest. I live in New London, CT. Wish you were closer. Thanks again.
Stan, Thanks for the information and links....
Best regards, Tom
