Navigaton tools used on the Pre Texas 200

~~~ 8-13 May 2006 ~~~
(The first official Texas 200 was sailed in 2007)

This is a comparatively expensive little flashlight a Coast PX20.
It has one red bright LED bulb in the middle and
a ring of 5 bright white LED bulbs surrounding the red one.
The white light is plenty strong to get a strong flash back from reflectors on buoys.
I hold the light over the side of the boat and low so as not to blind myself.
The red light works well for having a look at the compass or trying to find stuff in the boat while maintaing night vision.
(We sailed day and night).
