British Canoeing 2 Star

BC 2 Star Course

An improvement award and is your starting point that helps paddlers develop fundamental paddle sport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding into how the paddle, boat and water interact. Although the strokes may not be technically perfect, they should move the boat in the intended manner.   There is also appropriate time spent working in a open canoe.

This course is performed on sheltered waters, and is ultimately designed to get you moving in the right direction with your new paddling skills and to put the fun and confidence into paddling.
