INSTRUMENTS FOR MARITIME NAVIGATION

Whether you are a beginner, a trainee or an experienced professional, whether you are sailing or motoring, whether you are sailing inshore or offshore, you will find in this section all the instruments you need to manage your navigations in addition to the onboard electronics. This is also where you will find the tools you need for your maritime or pleasure sailing training programs: crest rulers, Breton protractors or dry point compasses... All these navigation products are designed and manufactured by the Picksea crew and are renowned for their practicality, ease of use and reading, solidity and durability over time. They are used by many sailing schools for training purposes.

COURSE OR SURVEY COMPASSES

The compass is one of the essential instruments in maritime navigation. It is even compulsory on board as soon as you are more than 2 miles from a shelter (Division 240). In recreational boating, there are two main types of magnetic compasses: the course compass which is most often mounted on the boat near the steering position and the bearing compass which is mainly used to measure an angle to a landmark or another boat. The location of the course compass must be chosen carefully to minimise the magnetic influence of the boat on the readings. For this purpose, it may be useful to follow the training course "Establishing a deviation curve" offered free of charge by the Picksea team on its platform Learn-to-sail.com.

A LARGE CHOICE OF MARINE BINOCULARS

Having a good pair of binoculars is essential for any sailor! Indeed, in maritime navigation, anticipation is a key factor to be able to identify a beacon or a danger well in advance. Your pair of binoculars will also help you to better spot a bittern and if it is equipped with an integrated compass, like the Topomarine Rescue BinocularsYou can also use your binoculars to help you spot a bittern and if it is equipped with an integrated compass, such as the binoculars Finally, it will allow you to observe marine animals such as cetaceans or seals. As with all navigation equipment, the choice of a pair of marine binoculars is a compromise between price, technical quality and on-board use: Picksea offers a wide range of marine binoculars for this purpose.

TRY ASTRONOMICAL NAVIGATION

Picksea offers a selection of sextants, accessories, tables and ephemeris for the astronomical navigation. A sextant is a useful tool on longer voyages as an alternative means of navigation if you lose your electronic instruments.
