Navigation Education Partnership Opportunities

Currently all of our classes are hosted in partnership with the Treworgy Planetarium at Mystic Seaport Museum. Classes are also held privately and have been offered both in Chicago (where I lived for 25 years) and in southern New England. We are actively seeking other partner institutions: museums, universities, schools, maritime academies, marinas, yacht clubs and other institutions. There's good money in this for both sides. Contact us for details.

The requirements for hosting our classes are simple:

As a partnership, we bring expertise and all the tools needed to teach celestial navigation. Students will have the opportunity to practice sights using sextants and other instruments owned by ReedNavigation and we provide all visuals and printed tables and manuals (in some cases, a "lab fee" may apply).

Do you offer private classes? I've got three people who would be willing to attend a class locally here in Newport.

Yes, I can set up a private class. I charge $500 for one to two students, $100 for each additional. It's a little quicker than the weekend classes. I usually organize it in two three-hour sessions with separately scheduled sight practice. We can tailor it to you needs and interests.
