The BCU 3 Star Open Canoe course is an award which is aimed at an intermediate paddler. We like this award as it is very flexible allowing people of all standard to improve their skills and also to be safer on the water. We run this course in accordance to the BCU syallabus, but pay particular attention to boat handling skills.
Typically we will spend the three days of this course in a couple of locations allowing you to learn the maximum which we can coach in the allotted time.
Day 1 - Chichester Harbour (or other sheltered venue) - We use this open environment assess your current skills, and work on improving them.
Day 2 - Chichester Harbour - This day is all about paddling on open water and paddling in the wind.
Day 3 - River Adur - This day is all about paddling in moving water! The venue at Shoreham provides us with great options of places to coach, and places to travel.
We run this as a combined training and assessment scheme, if you’re not interested in being assessed, just stick around for the assessment day and see how the flow of an assessment goes - you’ll also learn more skills!
