This class teaches small craft navigation skills applicable to canoes, kayak, small craft and hikers. You’ll learn to read topo maps and marine charts. Additionally, the course covers magnetic deviation, piloting, dead reckoning, ranges, bearings, fixes, triangulating and selecting courses. Required equipment: An inexpensive baseplate compass, like the Silva Starter. Optional: Small Craft Nav-Aid.
