Practical Coastal Kayak Navigation

Sunday, June 13, 2021

This course introduces you to the basics of coastal navigation. We will use a mix of land based and on water exercises to look at the skills required to safely plan trips along the South Carolina coastline. The basics of maps and charts, compasses, aids to navigation, declination/variation, and rules of the nautical road will be covered. As time and interest allow, we will touch on more advanced navigational skills such as dead reckoning, range lines, fixes, following bearings, triangulation, and compensating for the current. Gain confidence and skills to feel at ease knowing where you are and how to get to where you want to go.

Ages 16 & up.
