Royal Institute of Navigation award for ‘Sextant’

On 16 July I went to the Royal Geographical Society to receive the ‪#‎RoyalInstituteofNavigation‬ Certificate of Achievement from the Patron, the Duke of Edinburgh – in recognition of my ‘contribution to the history and popularisation of navigation’ through my book ‘Sextant’.

A very enjoyable occasion with a talk from ‪#‎Inmarsat‬ experts about how they tracked ‪#‎FlightMH370‬ as well as a fascinating lecture from ‪#‎ProfessorKathrynJeffery‬, of University College London on the neural foundations of navigational skills.

And of course very gratifying to be recognised by the head honchos of navigation!
