BC 2 Star Award

Date(s) - 19/05/2018 - 20/05/2018
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Brentford Canal


OK Edge, for those of you working towards independent paddler status, here’s your chance to knock off one of the three courses required. Anthony will be leading a BC 2 star course over the weekend of 19th/20th May, based at the canal. This covers a range of techniques to take you beyond the basics of manoeuvring craft, and also covers a few rescue skills. The syllabus can be found here: https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/courses/2-star-award

Please note that paddling two types of craft will be required to pass, so for most people, this means solo canoe in addition to kayak. We will put on some sessions in the weeks leading up to this, to enable practice. Rescues that require submergence will be carried out in the weekly pool sessions, the last of which is on 24th April, so speak to Anthony and arrange to get these ticked off in advance.

Cost is £50 per person- payment required to guarantee your place on the course, not just accepting this event! Max. 6 places, Edge members only until c.3 weeks before, then open to non-members if places remain. Message me for account details, or if you have any questions!
