    Gary, any sights from any year are fine.  Online Almanac: http://www.tecepe.com.br/scripts/AlmanacPagesISAPI.isa.  Send yours along and I'll post them with your name as submitter.
    Your are doing exactly the same thing I am.  We have a self-study Canadian PS CN group here, and I'm acting as the group's coordinator while taking the course too.  I just "met" another fellow doing the same with his group in Western Canada, so we're all in the same boat.  He has some great spreadsheets and animated gifs for some of the course's sights (the cruise).
    This Nav-L list has been extremely useful.

    Renee -- those are exactly the kinds of sights we are looking for.  Feel
    free to send a couple along and I'll post them, with credits.
    I assume that you are only interested in sights for the current year, since many of us pitch last years Nautical Almanac.  However I do have, if you are interested, a series of sun sights taken on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan in 2002.  I 
    I will also be taking many more sights this summer to complete my sight folder for my N certificate from the USPS.  These sights will be: two body fixes, three body fixes, meridian transit, latitude by Polaris and others.  I am currently self-studying this course and acting as mentor for others doing the same.  If your project takes wings I will be glad to contribute any of my sights and I'm sure that the others studying with me will be glad to do the same.
