I have usually[*] done the 'jump to navigation' version.

I assume if someone came to a page they want to read what is on it. If
they don't, then I'll give them the option to jump to navigation. That
way if they are reading several pages linked together, they don't have
to jump over 15 navigation links.

with PHP I also added an accesskey for navigation

Much better
