Piloting (Marine Navigation)

Piloting is the first course in the sequence of USPS courses on navigation. It covers the basics of coastal and inland navigation. It focuses on navigation as it is done on recreational boats today and embraces GPS as a primary navigation tool while covering enough of traditional techniques so the student will be able to find his/her way even if their GPS or chartplotter fails.
