Night Nav

Sixteen Year 10 students put their navigation skills to the test on the evening of Monday 3rd Feb. Training at night is useful as it simulates poor visibility conditions and requires students to think about navigation on a smaller scale; ‘micro nav’.  Students were able to practice pacing and timing, as well as techniques such as aiming off, hand railing and leap frogging. They even managed a small snowball fight before heading back to College!

One of the participants had this to say… ‘The night walk for Ten Tors training was one of the most enjoyable activities we’ve done so far. The poor visibility helped us to work more efficiently as a team and sharpened our navigation skills. However, the most memorable bit was that it snowed whilst we were up there. Very, very enjoyable! ’
