This mile builder is aimed on learning and/or refreshing skills on tidal waters mainly at night. We all do rely on modern equipment such as GPS, Radar and AIS. But what would we do when the equipment fails due to electrical problems or damage? Back to the traditional way with paper charts, basic knowledge, compass and estimated positions.
Recognizing buoys, lights, other vessels etc by night is a great way to build your skills and confidence. The sailing area will be the Wadden Sea and North sea and there will be plenty of opportunities for all candidates to master their navigational skills in the dark.
