- Kayaking & Canoeing
Details (public view):
The British Canoeing Paddle Explore Award (Kayak) is a follow on from the Discover Award and the replacement for BC 2 Star.
The Explore Award is an improvement award, which supports the development of fundamental paddlesport skills on sheltered water in a kayak. Successful performance at this level indicates that the paddler can use the required paddlesport skills on flat water to control movement of a kayak and have an understanding of how the paddle, boat, and water interact.
This course will cover kit/equipment, environment, paddle skills, safety and rescue.
Being able to paddle at a Explore level is a pre-requisite of most AOAC paddlesport trips and activities.
