BC 3 Star Sea Kayak

The British Canoeing 3 Star Sea Kayak course is aimed at those budding paddlers who want to apply their skills sea kayaking in a more dynamic environment. We follow the course content of the BC 3 Star Sea Kayak syllabus, putting specific emphasis on boat handling (especially turning), navigation skills and rescue skills.

We use a range of training locations for this course and may travel a bit to seek out the best locations for each day.

The BC 3 Star Sea Kayak course is aimed at those budding paddlers who fancy applying their skills into paddling Sea Kayaks.

Our Course:

We run this course in accordance with the British Canoeing syllabus, so please take a look at the BC 3 Star Sea Kayaking syllabus, training, and assessment notes which can be found here:

"Successful performance at this level indicates that a candidate can consider themselves as an able improving sea paddler rather than a beginner" - British Canoeing aims for this course

We use a range of training locations for this course; as well as refining skills in a sheltered environment we will also aim to spend time working in a small tidal race, plus experiencing some small surf as part of the course. We will also travel a bit to seek out the best locations for each day.

We run this course as a combined training and assessment scheme, if you’re not interested in being assessed, you can stick around for the assessment day and see how the flow of an assessment goes - you’ll also learn more skills!
