BCU 2 Star Canoe & Kayaking Course

Looking to reach club level or start on your way to becoming a paddling coach? It's time for the BCU 2 Star.

Liquid Leisure's BCU 2 Star Canoe & Kayak course is run in the stunning Beaulieu River nature reserve - a south-coast estuary in the New Forest - perfect for focusing on developing your paddling skills.

Prior experience is essential for this course - we recommend you reach your 1 Star certification before booking on to the 2 Star training - as you'll need to be comfortable capsizing your boat and paddling with ease on flat water. The emphasis of the course is to have fun, but there is a real qualification behind it, so safe practice is key.

Your 2 Star training will be run over 2 days, with the course being split between both open canoeing and kayaking. You will be coached in the fundamentals of the syllabus and leave with an action plan to prepare for your assessment. The assessments require a full extra day on the water, and successful candidates will be required to show their basic skills in both paddlesports disciplines over a guided journey.

Liquid Logistics will supply all the equipment required for the course, although you are welcome to bring your own boat or kit if you have them.

Duration (Exact): 3 Days
Booking Availability: Liquid Logistics run this BCU course one Saturday every month. Once you've requested a booking Liquid Logistics will contact you to confirm your booking date and time.
What You'll Need: All equipment is provided, so simply bring food and drink, as well as some active clothing and trainers you don't mind getting a bit wet! The centre will kit you up with kayaks, paddles, bouyancy aids, spray decks and weather protection (if required).
Ability Level Requirements: Anyone wishing to undertake BCU 2 Star training should be able to produce their 1 Star certification (or demonstrate kayaking to a 1 Star level) prior to starting the course.
Physical Requirements: The BCU courses are centred around an adult learning environment; so participants must be aged 14 or over.
Getting There: Liquid Logistics are based near Beaulieu in the New Forest, easily reached by car. For something a little different, Hire-a-Twizy allow you to travel by train to Brockenhurst station and use an electric Renault Twizzy buggy to travel through the forest!
