Six members of South Wales Mountaineering Club undertook their Silver National Navigation Award this weekend, in really testing conditions.
The group quickly put their skills to the test as the visibility changed from distant views of the English coastline to just a few dozen metres at most! Over the two days, they demonstrated that they could safely plan routes in open country, and navigate to them with pinpoint accuracy.
Following the course, Cari E said, “I Just wanted to say thank you again for a really great course this weekend. I feel like I’ve brushed up well on bits I knew as well as learning quite a few new tools and techniques. The best thing about the course was being able to put all we have learned into practice – in really harsh conditions!”
The next Silver course will be running on the weekend of 7th and 8th December and there just a few places left.
