BCU 3 Star Award is an internationally recognized step in a paddler’s development. Achieving this award signifies that you have transitioned from a novice to an intermediate paddler. The BCU 3-Star training is a two day training designed to assist you in achieving that transition. As such it is an intermediate sea kayak course. This course does not start with the basics, but rather seeks to improve existing skills for experienced kayakers who are ready to move up to the next level. If you have been paddling for a while, or are planning a sea kayaking adventure, 3-Star training is an excellent way to refine skills and build confidence. At the 3-Star level, paddlers will show skill with a variety of strokes, maneuvers and rescues. Participants will train on efficient forward paddling, maneuvering on the move, and linking strokes into maneuvers. Basic understanding of tides and navigation are also covered in this course. I think the best trainings are fun. So I include games and scenarios as an essential part of the learning process. Each day we'll be on the move, as on a journey, so be prepared to eat lunch along the way and have all of your kit packed and ready to go at the beginning of the day. At the end the training I’ll sit down with you and work out a plan as to what steps you may take to be at a point of passing the 3 star assessment.
If you have beginner skills and you would like a lot more boat control, safety and confidence, or would like to learn prerequisite skills for rolling; this is the class for you.
