BCU Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning for Sea Kayaking, North East and Northumberland
Course Dates – please contact me for dates as these are often run as part of a Four Star Sea Kayak Leader Training course.
The aim of this course is to give the student the tools to enable them to plan and navigate effectively on coastal journeys in moderate sea conditions. This will include the following aspects:
To interpret sources of information including maps, charts, coastal pilots and tide tables.
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 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.
