– What is a position?
– What is latitude and longitude, how is it calculated & why do we use degrees and nautical miles?
– What does your chart plotter tell you and what are the pitfalls of using electronic charts – are updates important?
– What do the depths and heights on your chart plotter mean – why is knowing the tide important?
– Why your compass almost never points north!
