At Sea with Technology


Blue Water Section Talk & Workshop

At Sea with Technology

Saturday 18th February 2017, 0900 - 1700

A set of talks on three important technologies for blue water cruisers - Automatic Identification System (AIS), High Frequency (HF/SSB) radio and Satellite Imagery-based Electronic Charts. Each will be described and their use in blue-water cruising discussed. A workshop session will follow the Satellite Imagery charting (using Google Earth Imagery) talk to demonstrate how to create and use your own satellite imagery-based electronic charts.

Mike Reynolds our presenter is an electronics engineer with a keen interest in navigation and communication systems to aid Bluewater cruising. He has developed many GE imagery libraries and shares these with fellow cruisers.
