  • <h2>GPS is a great navigation aid. However, it is important to know how to use it and to identify the risks in order to better prevent them.</h2> <p>Learn how to use all the GPS functions, and at a glance on your screen you will see where you are and where you are going, how long it will take you to get there and what time you will be in port. As your boat progresses, the various displays, figures and graphs show the constantly changing data, which is both fascinating and reassuring.</p> <p>As an everyday tool, GPS has become commonplace for road traffic or nature walks. Its nautical use, however, remains the most sophisticated of all, along with air navigation. At sea, a lack of settings, a handling error or a wrong reading can result in a shipwreck, with much more serious consequences than getting lost in the open country. Marine sense - a mixture of thoughtful analysis of all the information on board, observation of the maritime environment and constant sensory monitoring - consists first and foremost in never relying on a single instrument, even if it is as precise and magical as the GPS. When the reefs appear in front of the bow, it is too late to wonder if the position displayed on the screen is really accurate...</p> <p>This special edition is aimed at beginners as well as those who already use a GPS on a regular basis but who do not check its correct operation, rarely pay attention to its settings and hardly use its advanced functions...</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>Dare the adventure of night sailing thanks to the wise and learned advice of Jean-Louis Guéry</h2> <p>For many yachtsmen, night sailing is still forbidden, because it is too frightening, too risky or too mysterious. But we must beware, because if the yachtsmen who have not yet dared to sail under the stars knew all the pleasures and advantages that can be gained, they would have already cast off and sent the canvas!</p> <p>That's the world we're taking you into with this new special edition. We give you all the advice you need to sail safely, teach you how to recognise lighthouses, help you to navigate properly, and invite you to avoid the traps of other boats and their little headlights that waddle under the pale, icy light of the moon. A special edition that gives you a clear idea of which route to take. You will also learn about the marvellous world of the stars and the stars that enchant these nocturnal navigations.</p> <p>This special issue is also very practical and will introduce you to all the latest equipment that is essential for the boat and its crew. So why not make your nights even more beautiful than your days? It's up to you to cast off the canvas, we've lit up the stars!</p> <h2>Features</h2>
