New Look Website

The new-look Silva Navigation School website has been launched.

The new site has brought a much fresher and cleaner look to the site bringing all the navigation links to each page making it much easier to find what you’re looking for. Also launching today, is the faster, slicker and more efficient web shop selling Navigation Courses, Books and Silva Compasses. The shop has previously ‘sold’ free items too, the Navigation Aid and two versions of route cards. This whole process has been simplified and is available almost instantly without me having to authorise the ‘purchase’.

Please let me know what you think and feel free add your suggestions for further improvements.

The New Season

The new season

The new Bronze navigation course season gets underway in earnest this weekend. Ten eager participants all wanting to get to grips with their maps and compasses. The course is based at the Anchor pub in Tideswell and we’re heading out for two fabulous walks in the Peak National Park to help them learn those essential navigation skills. Slightly damp at the moment but not enough to dampen the enthusiasm.

The Silva Navigation School always tries to surf the wave of technology(!) and has this week added both Facebook links and the option to follow the collective musings of the SNS on twitter.  With either I can’t promise deep philosophical thought but hey why not give it a go.
