Passage Planning for Expeditions course

Comparing traditional and electronic hand held flares
The upcycled feather banner, and the microplastics trawl

Course participants from all corners of Scotland, and Bristol, braved the elements to attend the course on the Isle of Seil. Force 8 gales and power cuts did not stop the learning although we almost got blown away when having a photo call on the slate berm by Easdale Bay. As well as learning about planning, tides, charts, communications etc, we had an inspiring first hand account of three very different long distance voyages. Luckily the power came back on in time for the slide show! RowAround’s boffin-in-residence gave an enthusiastic introduction to the microplastics trawling project which will take place as part of RowAround Scotland 2020.
