On Track Days Relaunched – its all about being safe on the hills
ON TRACK DAYS 2017
We have relaunched our On Track Days for 2017 and they are designed for all walkers about keeping safe in the outdoors and more importantly what to do if your day goes wrong or you come across someone else who needs help.
The day course is designed and run by YDG instructors who have more than 40 years experience in mountain rescue.
We spend as little time as possible indoors before moving outdoors to learn some simple techniques that will help when things go wrong.
Learn some basic map and compass skills, reorienting yourself, giving an accurate grid reference, planning a walk, what kit to take etc.
Dealing with simple emergencies and how to get help without preventable delays if things are a bit more serious.
We don’t do minimum numbers but we don’t do more than 6 to an instructor, more than 6 we bring in an additional instructor.
Bring a packed lunch with you and walking kit appropriate for the weather on the day. Map and compass supplied for the day if needed.
