June 16, 2018 - June 17, 2018$300.00
The British Canoeing Sea Kayak Leader (Old 4 Star Leader) award is designed to get you thinking as a leader on and off the water. Successful performance at this level also indicate that the candidate has the personal skill level and leadership ability required to judge the conditions and the standard of the group and make appropriate decisions about the planned route, along with the thought process and action to modify plans as required.
Perform competently practical skills in force 4/5 winds and sea state 4 in a moderate tidal water environment and be capably of paddling 15/20 miles in 3 Star conditions. This is not a coaching award, but rather a leadership award and is not suitable to introduce beginners to the sport.
