    Sextants in Coastal Piloting
    From: Russell Sher
    Date: 2000 Aug 16, 12:28 AM

    Hi Carl - I run a sailing school in Cape Town and we teach sextant use for
    our coastal and Yacht Master courses. Topics covered are vertical and
    horizontal sextant angles. A short explanation of the sextant use is
    covered, often with some practical handling.
    When this topic is covered, I mention that it is part of the navigator's
    'toolbox' of skills. In practice it is unlikely that many (or any) of the
    students will even use the technique. (Many students ask why it is being
    covered.)
