    the USCG Aux had long stopped giving the celnav class when I took their
    coastal nav class, in March 1991 according to my certificate on the wall...
    FWIW, in March 2001 I took the "Introduction to Celestial Navigation" class
    from Ocean Navigator School of Seamanship.  instructor (Andy Howe) was
    excellent, materials were good for both teaching and reference, and lately
    the occasional refresher.  and the catering from Greens Restaurant in San
    Francisco was excellent!
    these are the good old days
