    Re: Is this a real site (celestial... .info)?

    ....on the various non-intersecting communities.. In the UK anyone
    wanting to learn celestial navigation for the purpose of navigating on
    ocean passages on a yacht takes the RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased
    course (https://www.rya.org.uk/courses-training/exams/Pages/yachtmaster-ocean.aspx)
    . It includes things like tropical weather and passage planning as was
    as celnav.
    
    The syllabus is on the Hamble web site.
    https://www.hamble.co.uk/yachtmaster-ocean-theory-syllabus
    
    I expect the majority of British bluewater yachtspeople do the course,
    buy a (secondhand) Davis sextant and never think about joining any
    forum. It probably never occurs to them to search for celestial
    navigation as they  have only heard it called "astro navigation". I
    expect they do look for some Youtube videos by Tom Cuncliffe on how to
    adjust a sextant.
