A day of great visibility and autumn colours was followed by another with hill fog that made navigating much harder for the latest NNAS students. Amalfi Veterans Team 1 were not deterred though and did a great job leading the team across the difficult terrain during their assessment.
During Day 1 the team learned the skills they would need to navigate successfully and get off the beaten track and enjoyed views that stretched for miles!
Day 2 was completely different with very poor visibility and damp weather. Throughout the day the students remained positive and ensured they used the skills they had learned to navigate to given places with pinpoint accuracy.
All four candidates were successful in achieving their Silver Navigator award. “What a great course” said Dawn G. “I’ll definitely be using these skills on future walks.”
Mountain Experience are delighted to announce that Nigel Lewis is now an accredited Expedition Assessor for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. “I’ve really enjoyed the work so far.” said Nigel. “It’s so rewarding seeing the young candidates develop as they put themselves through their paces. I’m particularly grateful to “School Camps Ltd” and The Abbey School, Reading, for their support in gaining the qualifications.”
