The aim of these courses is to give the student the tools to enable them to plan and navigate effectively on coastal journeys in moderate sea conditions, or open water crossing in advanced conditions. This will include the following aspects:
To interpret sources of information including maps, charts, coastal pilots and tide tables.
- To plan journeys in a range of environments.
To navigate on the water using visual references and simple pilotage techniques e.g. transits, dead reckoning and a compass.
To be able to source, interpret and apply a weather forecast to the marine environment.
By the end of the course each student should have planned at least 2 coastal or open water journeys that they can take home as references for further trip planning.
Students should also be aware of the range of resources they require to plan trips in the coastal environment
