Buoy hopping

Sometimes it will be helpful to run from one buoy to the next, when there arc enough of these to make success probable. Buoy hopping with GPS and especially radar presents few difficulties, and it can be most reassuring to see the metalwork loom out of the gloom. Without them, it should only be attempted when to fail would not be catastrophic. Miss one buoy and you've had it, so don't rely on the technique exclusively if in doubt.

If visibility is good enough to be certain of finding the bubble of clearness around the next buoy without electronic assistance, you arc in good shape, but if the fog is thick, the buoys far apart and the currents strong, you may be backing a lame horse. Always remember that you can take a personal observation of set and drift with great accuracy (see Chapter 15).
