Navigation - Mount Desert Island, ME

Basic navigation is an essential skill for kayakers anywhere, but particularly on the Maine coast, where indistinct spruce-covered islands are innumerable, and fog visits regularly.  This one-day course will introduce navigational concepts and tools on land, and then progress to applying those skills from the seat of your kayak, as we take to the water in a target-rich navigation environment.  We will cover chart-reading, tidal dynamics, trip-planning, and, in a nutshell, how to find your way on the water.
