    It's my understanding, perhaps incorrect, that they no longer teach Celestial Navigation to cadets at The Naval academy. Quartermasters supposedly do receive such training, which strikes me as strange, though some have it that someone needs to know what to do and how to do it should the electronics pack up.

    It is interesting that the Coast Guard, sometimes known as The Broomstick Navy, supposedly they never ventured out of sight of land, are taught Cel Nav. Of course, given that I'm pure civilian, I suppose that puts me somewhat out of the running re unbderstanding the military.
