Find out where you are (or ought to be) using only the sun and a sextant!


Spend the day with Captain Sanders as he guides you through a complete Latitude at Noon sight.

Morning will be in the classroom learning the tools of the trade. Then it’s underway on Lake Union where we’ll be shooting the sun at noon from the deck of the 70’ ketch Amneris- bring a lunch!  We return to the classroom for an afternoon of reducing your shot and plotting your position. This class is the first step in your celestial journey and if you get hooked, Captain Sanders will be offering a complete class shooting the moon, stars and planets to pinpoint your exact location anywhere on our orb.


COST: $175 general | $125 CWB Members + USMA alumni
