Club news

Navigation by the stars is the topic for our next lecture, 13th Jan 2020.

For our January lecture, Master Mariner and nautical science lecturer Bill Kavanagh will explain how traditional methods were used to obtain a ship’s position by observing astronomical objects, and how such methods are being used again today in an era of global navigation satellite systems.

Monday 13th January, 8 pm at UCC,  all welcome.  Please arrive 10 minutes early, or if you wish to join, then ideally at 7.40 if you can.
