The BCU Three Star Sea Kayak Award is for intermediate paddlers who have already developed the fundamental kayak skills on flat water and now wish to apply them to more challenging environments. The sea kayak award takes all the basic skills developed at two-star level and applies them to the coastal environment. In addition paddlers will need to show an understanding of trip planning on the sea, demonstrate appropriate rescues and towing techniques, demonstrate key off-balance strokes on the move and be able to roll.
A paddler who achieves the three star award can consider themselves to be a competent member of a group paddling in sheltered or moderate water on the sea.
Three star skills days will be tailored to suit the particular needs of the participants, elements of the syllabus will be worked on to assist participants in moving towards the award and individual guidance will be offered as to areas for further development prior to assessment.
Assessments can be arranged for participants who reach the required standard.
Cost is £55 (£50 if two days are booked together), all equipment is included.
