Pelorus aboard HMS Belfast
In marine navigation, a pelorus is a reference tool for maintaining bearing of a vessel at sea. It is a "dumb compass" without a directive element, suitably mounted and provided with vanes to permit observation of relative bearings.[1]

WHAT IS A PELORUS?

A pelorus (essentially a pair of sights either side of a compass card) can be used to take relative bearings and so can be used in checking for compass deviation as well as transits.

The pelorus featured in last month’s Any Questions and in YM’s coverage of the ARC has caused much interest.

It was carried by Donal O’Driscoll, skipper of Re Shuanta, a Hallberg Rassy 42. It had been built for him (by his brother-in-law) using a compass rose from an Admiralty chart and some clever metal work.
