If you’ve already done a Taster or have some navigation experience but want to refresh your skills and practice with support, this is the session for you. We will re-cap all skills from the Taster and look to build on the following:
. Simple route planning and use of strategies
. Understanding contours & relating to prominent land forms
. Re-locating (when you’re not sure where you are!)
. Using the compass
Also discussion around the Countryside Code, appropriate kit, mobile phone apps and more.
HOW ABOUT SOME NIGHT NAVIGATION?
It’s a fantastic way boost your confidence even further and build on your strategies, timing and pacing. We’ll start just before sunset and walk into the dark. Includes hot chocolate and biscuits!
“I cannot recommend the night navigation enough…in the dark you need to have as many tools as possible…Cathy was superb, the epitome of calmness and patience..such an unusual pleasure to walk on the Downs at night.”
