Get started on the path to becoming an expert canoe/kayaker with this one day British Canoe Union (BCU) course.
The BCU Stars are universally recognised across the UK as the way to develop your skills and progress in paddlesports. This first course requires no previous experience in these boats, just enough fitness to handle a full day out on the water.
This BCU One Star course is run in the stunning Beaulieu River Nature Reserve, making it a fantastic place for first time paddlers to get to grips with the sport.
Over the course of the day you will work on fundamental skills and knowledge, including:
- What to use
- Paddling technique
- Basic boat control
- Where to go paddling
- What could happen and how to handle it
This course will put you in a great position to get more from your time on the water. The emphasis of the day is very much on having fun, whilst learning the safe practices that will result in you being awarded your One Star certification.
Liquid Logistics will supply all the equipment required for the day, although you are welcome to bring your own boat or kit if you have them. It is generally expected that you are comfortable swimming with a buoyancy aid or being on the water.
