Navigation Course
Content will be determined by people that want to go on the course but the below covers what the maximum could be but this would only be covered if attendees are happy with other areas.

This day is designed for those with previous navigation experience who want to add extra tools to their navigation toolbox and push their navigation strategies on more challenging featureless terrain. The content will, to some extent, be tailored to meet the needs of participants but it is expected we will cover the following as a minimum:

- Applying navigational strategies such as aiming off, attack points, handrailing, overshoot features and aspect of slope
- Understanding a range of map types and scales
- Understand the use of both large and small contour features on the map and on the ground
- Develop decision making factors affecting route choice
- Judging distance accurately on the map and being able to relate this to distance travelled on the ground
- Employing appropriate relocation strategies
- Using a compass to follow accurate bearings and to check the direction of footpaths or other linear features on both the map and ground
- Additional skills that can be employed when navigating in poor weather


Thanks,
Mark

Anyway, I'm surprised there isn't more interest in this. Come on everyone, this is a bargain! There might even be an opportunity to hear the debut of "Lindsay signs Celine"*. What more could you want?


*Ear plugs not provided.
