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.
