Coastal Navigation & Tidal Planning Course

Steve delivered a Coastal Navigation & Tidal Planning course last week for staff from a centre in the NE.  This course is a prerequisite for the Sea Kayak Leader but its content is relevant and appropriate for all those venturing out onto the sea in small craft (e.g. sea kayaks, sit on tops, paddle boards)  – or even wild swimming in the sea.  The single day covers causes and effects of weather on inshore areas, tides and the prediction of tidal height and current rates, planning coastal journeys using appropriate charts, maps, pilots, tide tables and other important primary information, pilotage, buoyage and much else besides.

Steve runs several of these days every year.  If you venture out onto the sea for your recreation or are interested in professional Sea Kayak qualifications you will find this course very valuable.  If you’d like more information get in touch with Steve for a chat: 07796 213817 and steve@stevebanksoutdoors.co.uk
