Previously known as the British Canoeing 4 Star Award, this training course will include personal paddling, tidal planning, equipment awareness, environmental awareness and supporting knowledge. In addition to this, safety and rescue will be covered along with leadership of groups of up to four paddlers in moderate sea conditions.
Successful performance at this level indicates that a candidate has the personal skill level and leadership ability required to lead a group of paddlers, on short (6 to 8 miles, of at least 3 hours paddling), single or multi-day journeys in a moderate tidal water environment with winds not exceeding Beaufort Force 4. The British Canoeing Sea Kayak Leader has the skills and judgement to select appropriate environments for paddlers with a range of experience.
We will work together to provide feedback and an action plan to achieve the award.
