Overview

Ever been lost in the fog? Cautious about paddling in new surroundings? Join us for an enjoyable weekend on the Maine coast to learn basic coastal navigation. Our experienced instructors will help you use a compass and nautical charts, plot courses, and understand the causes and effects of tides. You'll learn how to plan day trips: expected traveling speeds, effects of wind and current, how to adjust course. Foundations covered in "class time" on Saturday, but then we're out on the water. Small groups will follow student-plotted courses (Don't worry. You'll get back safely.) On the water again Sunday to plot a route and return by noon. You'll receive a packet of materials and a Small Craft NAV-AID course plotter to take home. Cost includes instruction, Saturday and Sunday breakfast, Saturday dinner (our food is legendary), two nights lodging at beautiful Knubble Bay camp right on the Maine coast. Bring or rent kayaks. Kayaks and other equipment can be rented from Seaspray Kayaking (207-443-3646). Seaspray delivers to Knubble Bay Camp. Hurry. This one fills fast.
