Being from THE Yachting Centre of the World, if you are from the UK I would suggest a course from the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) - I believe they do one. Other than that, I would suggest looking at Amazon for a book on the subject.

Can anyone please point me in the direction of a downloadable ebook on how to use a sextant? Or otherwise maybe send me one?

So Maybe U2U doc and see if he can help us I will keep looking. I seem to remember that doc had a thread or post on using a sextant but I may be wrong.
The principles of a sextant are easy to master but its use requires some skill and practice. Small errors make for large discrepancies in one's position.
