Navigation I – Classroom
September 9, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
It is critical for kayakers to know how to safely get from one location to another and know exactly where they are along the way. This basic navigation course will introduce you to the essential fundamentals of kayak navigation. You’ll learn how to read nautical charts, use a compass, understand the difference between true and magnetic north, how to plot a course, measure distance, and factor in tides and current to create a float plan for any trip you might be planning. The art of navigation is explained in understandable segments so that it can be applied in real on water situations.
