    Who needs a compass? Who needs a sextant?
    From: Jackson McDonald
    Date: 2020 Aug 18, 13:07 +0000

    From The New York Times:

     

    Marvin Creamer, a Mariner Who Sailed Like the Ancients, Dies at 104

     

    No GPS for him, not even a sextant; the sun and the stars did nicely. He was the first recorded person to sail round the world without navigational instruments.
