The first day is working with navigation charts. Students will become familiar with all aspects of the chart datums, compass rose, true vs magnetic direction, chart symbols, land features, water depths and bottom types, measuring distance, degrees-minutes-seconds vs degrees-decimal minute and plotting a course. Chart exercises are continuous all day. Much of the information from the charts will be transferred to the GPS units the next day.
