NV Pilot Offshore chart
NV-Charts is a German publisher that has designed and developed a concept of offshore charts that allow to plan, prepare and follow an offshore navigation or a crossing, NV-Chart Group offers a range of road charts under the name NV-Pilot.
These are double-sided folding paper charts with road maps at scales ranging from 1:1,150,000 to 1:750,000. NV-Pilot marine road maps cover a large area and do not contain detailed symbols. With NV-Pilot charts, you can choose your routes and consider your options. All these charts contain important traffic lights and distances between potential stops. The maps are in A1 format and are folded to 15 x 30 cm.
WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO PLAN AN OFFSHORE ROUTE?
Planning an offshore or deep-sea voyage is above all a way of anticipating hazards, in particular those linked to future weather conditions, and of forecasting the boat's route according to the direction of the wind and the swell: this is called 'routing'. The fact of studying and planning it for a 24 to 72 hour sail is called 'passage planning'.
The passage planner also allows the planning of shelters and diversion ports and the preparation of detailed maps of the approaches to these ports.
The use of a paper chart, such as the NV-Pilot charts, has the advantage of allowing a global vision of the route during the preparation.
FOR ASTRONOMICAL NAVIGATION
If you are interested in traditional navigation and in particular in astronomical navigation, NV-Pilot charts are particularly suitable for plotting your points calculated from measurements on your sextant whether it's a point on the sun or a point of stars.
As a reminder, the knowledge of the realization of a point with the sun is particularly useful when no alternative electronic positioning means to the main one are available on board.
