Coxswain Course – Part 3 (2015)

On the 13th of November 2015 VMR Tasmania members training for their Coxswain certificate met at VMR Dodges Ferry for part 3 of their course. The weekend was dedicated to navigation and rules and regulations.

Out on the water we used charts to plot courses and marking waypoints. We used navigation methods like Cross Bearing Fix, Position Lines, Running Line and Dead Reckoning. This allowed us to identify our location in the bay with out using modern technology like our chart plotters. Even to our surprise using the GPS compass built into the iPhone we where able to find our location.

It was another great weekend with a special thanks to Surf Life Saving Tasmania and Tom and Gary from VMR Queensland
