Aim: To be able to plan and follow routes in the countryside navigating away from handrail features for short distances.
The Silver National Navigation Award develops the navigation skills acquired at the Bronze level. It adds skills required to navigate to features and places some distance from paths and tracks. It teaches accurate compass work. It will also teach you to select the suitable navigational techniques to cross open country.
We will meet in the Cafe but with most of the time spend outdoors. Please dress appropriately and bring a pack lunch. We will e-mail you 2 days before with final information.
Silver National Navigation Award courses are taught in areas with access to open country and involve periods where you’ll be navigating away from paths and tracks.
