This weekend we're running an advanced navigation course in Snowdonia as part of the BMC's Club Training Program.
'An introduction to the skills of advanced navigation to enable you to get off the beaten track whatever the weather. Navigation is a fundamental skill for hill walking which will increase your enjoyment and safety in the British hills and further afield. This two day course will challenge your preconceptions of what is possible with just a map and a compass. We will get lost, we will be out after dark and we will walk around in circles but by the end of the training you should have a good personal strategy for navigating and have gained plenty of confidence in your new skills.'
There's a second course running in the Peak District on the 15th & 16th September so if you're a member of a BMC affiliated club and are interested in improving your navigation please have a look at the BMC site.
