Three days of intensive training in paddling skills, leader ship, safety/rescue and coastal navigation/planning. This training is a pre-req for attending the Sea Kayak Leader assessment. The goal of the course is to develop personal skills level and leadership ability required to lead a group of paddlers on short single or multi-day journeys in moderate tidal water environments with winds not exceeding F4. Skills covered include self-rescue, rolling in rough water, practical on water navigation, group awareness and positioning in challenging situations, first aid, trip planning, and interpreting environmental features and hazards. Please review the BC syllabi, training and assessment notes. All these can be found on British Canoeing website here. Course pre-reqs: British Canoeing 3* standard.
Preferably , Friday we will run the CNTP day to get you in the best mind set to operate efficiently navigationally speaking during the SKL Training two days. If you already have taken the CNTP safety course recently and wish just to take the SKL 2 day training you have that option. But we will let the weather dictate really what we do. Can use venues from Fishers Island Sound to Newport Ri
