Cadet Blog: 3/C Salvador Relle (MTRA - Belle Chasse, LA) 1-30-23


Hey, Followers -

So today we had training.  We learned about celestial navigation which is navigating by the stars! We got to work with a sextant and learn how to use it.  We also used math to help us find the latitude and longitude of the sun after getting a certain degree off of the sextant and applying it to our calculations.

I hope y’all are enjoying the voyage.  We have 19 days left of our cruise. 

Thanks for checking in, Salvador, and thank you for sharing some great photos over the weekend.  

How exciting that you were introduced to the sextant during training.  I hope that our followers 4th - 12th grade will enjoy this video that introduces the sextant.
