Navigation Skills Course Lake District
It's been a pleasure to welcome back the Alertacall team from Windermere. After a successful orienteering event held in the autumn, they were keen to build on these skills, so a Navigation training session was the obvious next step.
Quite a whirlwind introduction to map & compass skills before setting off into the hills above Elterwater:
Orientating the map
Were all covered before we left the car park!
Then it was off we go to put it all into practice. 7 grid references were to be located to complete the course that covered only a small area, but an area of high complexity.
All the teams successfully navigated around the course, with only the occasional 'off-piste' adventures.
Well done all. We're looking forward to see more of the team next week.
