Coastal Navigation & Tidal Planning

This is an authorised and online version of the British Canoeing Safety Course: Coastal Navigation & Tidal Planning.  We deliver the course over four weeks, with four two hour evening sessions, providing support throughout the period with additional materials, resources and homework.  We aim to provide a holistic course, free of jargon that provides you with the essentials to build confidence and ensure that all the content is related to practical application on the water.  This is perfect for anyone who works or plays on the sea - making you a safer paddler.
