IMPROVERS

If you already have some navigation experience or have done a Taster, this session will build on your skills, in particular focusing on developing map memory, compass skills, contour interpretation, strategies and route planning. 

HOW ABOUT SOME NIGHT NAVIGATION?

It’s a fantastic way boost your confidence even further and build on your strategies, timing and pacing.

“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.”

Half Day

Approx 4 hours     5 to 6km     £40

Winter months 10am to 2pm

 Always a circular route and when possible a cafe/pub option at the end. Plenty of stops to introduce the skills, moderate walking fitness required, mostly staying on paths/tracks.

Full Day

Approx 8 hours    10 to 12 km      £60

Winter months 9am to 4pm

As for Half Day but after a lunch stop more time to practise the skills, plan your route and have the choice to lead a route section to put your skills to the test!
