Ritchie Navigation, a marine compass manufacturer for more than 150 years, has published a free guide to safe, effective compass navigation. The 24-page booklet, “Ritchie’s Complete Guide to Compass Navigation,” will be delivered at no cost to anyone who requests it by logging onto www.ritchienavigation.com .

“We believe the compass is the most valuable navigation instrument on any boat,” says Stephen Sprole, Ritchie vice president of marketing. “A compass is as important in 2005 as it was back in the 19th century. Power outages may come and go, but a compass never fails.”

The spiral-bound illustrated guide provides an array of information in an easy-to-use format, including how to use a compass in conjunction with electronic navigational aides. It also is available as a downloadable PDF file on the Ritchie Web site.
