This  course is designed for paddlers carrying out coastal journeys, including islands up to 2 nautical miles offshore in areas of tidal movement up to 2 knots and winds of up to force 4.

Through a number of practical planning exercises, the training provides candidates with the tools to plan and navigate efficiently in moderate sea environments.

Learning Outcomes:

The aim of this course is to give paddlers the tools to plan and navigate effectively on coastal journeys in moderate sea conditions. This will include the following aspects:

  • To interpret sources of information including maps, charts, coastal pilots, and tide tables
  • To navigate on the water using visual references and simple pilotage techniques e.g. transits, dead reckoning, and a compass
  • To be able to source, interpret, and apply a weather forecast to the marine environment
  • By the end of the course, each student should have planned at least 2 coastal journeys that they can take home as references for further trip planning
  • Students should also be aware of the range of resources they require to plan trips in the coastal environment
  • Although not part of the syllabus of the course, students should be made aware of the role of the Coastguard and the value of liaising with them.

The Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning course is delivered in eight hours of teaching over one day.
Whilst this is a theory-based course, the intention is that it is highly practical and candidates will participate in a variety of practical planning exercises.

Attendance Certificates are issued to successful candidates by British Canoeing following a recommendation from the course provider, subject to the following Certification fees.

These fees are not included in the course price and are payable on the day.
