(Sport: Orienteering)

Definition

This is a navigation technique that is safe and saves time. It aids the competitor in finding a point on a long feature. The method of aiming off is to aim deliberately to one side, so that when you come to the line feature and cannot see the control marker you know which way to turn to locate it.
