"There are no highways at sea. When a boat sails out from the comforting familiarity of the harbor it moves into a wide-open, ever-changing world. Perspectives shift, distances become hard to gauge, and landmarks along the receding shoreline take on a new and often perplexing aspect. Ahead, all kinds of unseen dangers may lurk—sand bars, rocks, sunken wrecks and powerful tidal currents. To keep track of his exact location in this alien environment and to lay a safe course to his next destination, a boatman applies a basic and venerable skill: he navigates." (The Wayfinding Art, pg 8)
