Open Water Navigation and Tidal Planning.

This is one of the safety courses in the British Canoeing system and is a prerequisite course for taking the BC Advanced SKL Assessment and is highly advised to take prior to a Training.  The day is a full indoors Navigation planning day.  Will explorer both charting and tidal information systems.  Here in US waters and UK waters where the award is designed for.

This course is designed for those paddlers carrying out advanced coastal and open water crossing journeys including islands more than 2 nautical miles offshore in areas of tidal movement more than 2 knots of tide and is a prerequisite for those seeking their British Canoeing Advanced Sea Kayak 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 Advanced Sea Kayak Leader Training.

I will be running this indoor course at the NESS, New England Science and Sailing Center.  72 Water Street, Stonington Ct


Cost $165/ day
