Hi Everyone. Do you want to take your Navigation to the next level, so you can become a confident independent hillwalker and navigator? This day will be about learning and practising how to use a compass to take bearings and techniques to help you relocate, including contour interpretation. You will also look at the use of timings and pacings. Having learnt these advanced skills you will then be able to apply them on a journey on to the Carmarthen Fans. I have 20 years experience in helping people learn how to navigate and I do it in a friendly relaxed and enjoyable way. There are limited places for this day so RSVP early.
We will meet at the Myddfai Village hall, have a cup of tea and after an introduction to the topics we will be using we will head out for a day of practical coaching in Navigation basics. You will need to bring a compass( Silva 4 recommended), watch with a stopwatch,waterproofs, boots, hat, gloves, warm clothes, lunch and drinks. I will provide maps and instruction and a fun day of learning and of course ongoing coaching on future walks that you attend, Any questions drop me a line. The group size will be limited so that I can provide plenty of personal input and coaching.You can be assured that I run courses in Navigation where quality of experience is put before quantity of participants.
I look forward to sharing a great day out with you.
Have a look at the group reviews for this day below to get an idea of what I am like
Thanks for a fab intro to map and compass walking -as opposed to just following along behind someone else. I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson, the fantastic views and the excellent company. I will definitely be along for another walk soon. Thanks again Sharon
