There are 18 "Electronic Navigation" course being given by the CPS in 2015 find find one near you... http://www.boatingcourses.ca/course-descriptions/electronic-navigation
Here is raw video if the moment of impact video.
We are learning in the CPS course on Electronic Navigation that you can erroneously set a course into a reef or land if you do your routing using a vector chart that has too small a scale or is too "Zoomed Out"
This is exactly what the navigator for the multimillion dollars Team Wind Volvo Ocean Racer did to ground their boat on the Cargados Carajos Shoals in the Indian Ocean on Saturday night, November 29.
According to the navigator, he knew he used too "zoomed out" a chart or one that covered a vast area and provides little detail when doing the initial routing. A small scale chart. He intended to go back later to the navigation task and verify the route with a zoomed in chart that provides a lot of detail for a small area. A large scale chart.
If it can happen to the pros in a boat with the newest and best navigation equipment it can happen to you and I.
