British Canoeing Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning
March 3 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
One event on March 4, 2021 at 3:30 pm
COVID UPDATE – due to restrictions on the use of indoor meeting rooms, this course will be delivered online. The format will be 4 x 2 hour online sessions using Zoom and will include tasks to be completed in your own time.
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 course is designed for those paddlers carrying out coastal journeys including islands up to 2 nautical miles offshore in areas of tidal movement up to 2 knots and is a prerequisite for those seeking their British Canoeing Sea Leader Award. However, anyone wishing to undertake journeys on the sea using a kayak would find the technical and theoretical aspects not only useful, but essential for safe travel in the marine environment! This course is designed to complement the areas covered in the British Canoeing Sea Kayak Leader Training.
Attendance Certificates are issued to successful candidates by British Canoeing.
