Our practical night navigation workshops are ideal for any competent navigators wanting to improve or test their skills in a safe and controlled environment. These workshops are also great for any aspirant Mountain Leader’s nearing assessment or in their consolidation period.
Please note that this workshop is not suitable for beginners. Due to the level of techniques and strategies covered on this course, it is advisable to attend a daytime navigation course before booking onto this.
The purpose of practicing navigation at night is to simulate the poor weather and poor visibility conditions that you may experience when out walking.
The workshop will cover various strategies and techniques used to aid navigation in poor visibility such as using pacing and timing to determine position, hand-railing linear features, contour interpretation, collecting and catching features and following compass bearings to name a few.
The workshops will take place in the Forest of Bowland, North Lancashire and in Burrowbeck, South Cumbria. Please note the locations listed along side the dates when selecting your workshop. All workshops will start at 18.00 and finish at 21.30.
