25 Ways to be a better navigator - A good navigator looks astern as well as ahead! In this 25th issue of The Navigator, we look back at the key points we’ve highlighted over the years. What was the most important to you – and is there anything here you’d like to take a closer look at?

Sharing knowledge, developing the future - Captain Andre L. LeGoubin (pictured below) is a Mooring Master, Senior Vice President of The Nautical Institute, and a keen distributor of The Navigator. We asked him why he does it

WAYPOINT - Articles of note - Dr Andy Norris, an active Fellow of The Nautical Institute and the Royal Institute of Navigation, looks back on 24 issues of The Navigator and recalls some key topics

Supporting the navigator- We have been able to share The Navigator message so widely thanks to the generous support of the International Foundation for Aids to Navigation (IFAN), which allows us to print and distribute 100,000 copies of every issue around the world. We asked John Hughes, one of IFAN’s directors, to tell us more about what IFAN does and why they support The Navigator’s mission.
