    The Foundation for the Promotion of the Art of Navigation (The Navigation
    Foundation), is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation of the
    art of celestial navigation. The Navigation Foundation was started in 1981 by
    a group of experienced navigators who believe that navigation is a personal
    skill essential to the seaman even in this age of electronics. The Navigation
    Foundation strives to educate and inform its members through the publication
    of a quarterly newsletter featuring articles on navigational methods, history
    of navigation and reviews of books on the subject. A reader's forum provides
    opportunities for neophytes and experts to exchange ideas and recount
    experiences. Frequently issues will contain a lesson in the basics of
    navigation, designed for newcomers. In order to raise public interest and
    awarenes, The Navigation Foundation awards prizes for demonstrated excellence
    in navigation at the United States Naval Academy, the United States Coast
    Guard Academy and other academic institutions. It provides assistance in the
    development of devices and aids to the navigator. It also provides members a
    substantial discount on books and charts. The Navigation Foundation asks
    members to donate $35 each year to cover the cost of providing the services
    outlined. Your donation is fully deductible for income tax purposes (United
    States only)) and goes entirely towards the objectives of The Navigation
    Foundation, since the Officers serve without pay. This is a people-to-people
    organization without advertising or commercialization. Because The Navigation
    Founation is an all volunteer organization, there may be times when a query
    will go unanswered. If this should happen, wait a few days and repost your
    query. The Executive Director personnally handles all e-mail, memberships,
    collection of material for the quarterly newsletter and returns all telephone
    calls. There will be a delay in responce when he is on travel. Join this
    unique group of individuals and help preserve the ancient art of celestial
    navigation for future generations. Your $35 donation will be put toward a
    worthy cause. Visit our friends links at
