Here you can watch some of the videos of the CAP 2018
and read testimonials from the participants:
Ancient sailors did not know how to position themselves precisely until the beginning of the 19th century.
They only knew its latitude thanks to the Pole Star or meridian. Until the end of the 18th century thanks to the stopwatch they could also know the longitude.
In 1750 the sextant appeared, used in both maritime and air navigation, until in the 80's, when GPS began to be used on board.
More than 200 years using this wonderful instrument, the sextant.
Do you dare to challenge yourself and navigate as they used to sail before?
