Navigating Mid Coast Maine

$84

with Coast Guard Auxiliary, Central Lincoln County Adult Education

Calendar Apr 23, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Here are three easy ways to make boating more enjoyable: 1) learn the basics about the information found on nautical charts including GPS charts, 2) have your charts out where you can use them when enjoying Maine’s beautiful mid-coast waters, and 3) learn about navigation aids (they’re on the charts and on the water) so you can use them to cruise safely. You can do all three things by taking this class. It is an introduction to navigation using a chart of the Boothbay area. 

Learn how to read a chart and become familiar with the coastal waters between Small Point and Pemaquid. Problem sets will help you plan cruises and understand the information found on charts (e.g., buoys, lights, water depth) and to use them while cruising the area. True and magnetic headings, variation, lines of position, chart symbols, piloting, latitude and longitude, and dead reckoning are explained. The Three Rivers chart (#13293) is included. Please bring a pencil and a good eraser to the first class. A parallel ruler and dividers are needed in the first class. If you do not have either charting tool, each can be purchased separately.

About the instructor:

I’m an urban girl from a metropolis area of the south (like west-coast-of-Florida-south), who’s systematically moved north to find the land of her dreams in Maine. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, a Master of Arts in Holistic Wellness, am a certified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and Elder Greenfire WiseWoman.

I’ve spent over 20 years researching natural and alternative forms of healing. I’ve spent that time also watching trends come and go…often coming back under a new name but with the same dangerous effects. 

Because of all my research, I’ve vowed to stick with tried, true, and more logical, scientific remedies. I’ve also spent over a decade working in health insurance, auto/home insurance, have worked for pediatric gastroenterologist’s as well as chiropractors, and have fought on both sides of medical claims to get Dr’s paid or not paid. I’ve seen all sides of our sick care model, and understand how and why they work.

I’ve been confused. I’ve lost my loved ones to diseases, after spending years caring for them and giving them solid, sound advice. I’ve had my own health battles. I’ve been frustrated by the information/misinformation out there.

I needed alternatives. People soon began asking me to explain how I got those alternatives.

My mission, or calling, is to help you cut through all of the confusion you see and hear about being healthy. I do this because of my own experiences of loss and confusion.

I want you to be able to do what I do—get the diagnosis from western medicine and responsibly follow a Holistic and natural, sensible, empowered existence.

There is a middle road between medicine and nature, and I’m here to help you find it.
