British Canoeing approved Online Coastal Navigation & Tidal Planning (CNTP) courses

Wednesdays; February 16, 23, March 2, 9, 16. 1800-2030 UK time. This course is in English with German language support from Trenk at Sea Kayak Germany.
During this British Canoeing approved online course (usually spread over 5×2½ hour online classes), we’ll explore how to use and interpret;
Weather forecasts and swell.
Tide tables, tidal range
Tidal Streams, tide rips, races overfalls and eddies
Maps, Charts, interpreting coastal and offshore features
The course is suitable for kayakers, paddle-boarders and water sports enthusiasts who want to increase their knowledge to have a safer experience around the coast. We’ll be using Jersey charts, and tidal information during many of the classes and students are encouraged to use their local waters to plan trips. Plus, there is the opportunity to share knowledge with attendees. Since the online courses started, I’ve had students from San Francisco, the UK, Eire, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and Chile.
By the end of the course, you will have planned at least two coastal journeys that can be taken home and used as references for future trips.
Upon satisfactory completion of the course, a British Canoeing certificate of attendance is included in the cost.
