MR1 was taken to sea for blind navigation training. 3 senior crew each built a passage plan that they then had to direct the the crew and boat through.  Each navgator had to work on course, speed and time, depth of water, cross bearings from target points on land and general observation questions to the crew.

The navigators were not able to see out of the boat.

This was followed with some bar crossing heavy weather handling practise for 2 helmsmen.

A succesful training day in less than nice sea conditions
