BCU 3 Star Training

The BCU 3 Star Training is a two day 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.

BCU 3 Star Training

Date and Time: Thursday, June 20 – Friday, June 21, 2019, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

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.  The best trainings are fun, so games and scenarios are included as an essential part of the learning process.

Each day we will 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 of the training the Coaches will set 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.
