A Glorious Night Out!
The weather over the past weekend was one of forecasts for heavy rain and flooding across the country. Amidst this Peak Navigation Courses still managed to run a successful night navigation course that was acclaimed as brilliant by the students attending!
“Thanks for last nights night nav session. Really enjoyed it!” Ashley Dawson
|Night Navigation, planning strategies|
The course we run starts at 6.30pm during the winter months and involves a practical session of around three hours. Conditions last Saturday were some of the most challenging that we have known. However being just a short course for experienced hill walkers the course was on.

Various techniques were put into practice including relocation before we adjourned to the pub for a celebration debrief. None of us were left wearing a dry item of clothing but all agreed that it was a realistic experience.
Peak Navigation Courses run a range of map reading and navigation courses in the Peak District National Park. Courses are aimed from absolute beginners to those with lots of experience who want to refine their skills.
