Mastered your 2 Star kayaking and ready to specialize? Step up to sea or whitewater qualification with the BCU 3 Star award
The 3 Star certification carries with it a high level of skills and leadership. Paddlers attaining this standard will be considered as intermediate kayakers - over the 3 to 4 days of training and assessment you will cover the techniques and knowledge for a specific discipline or environment - whether that be sea kayaking or inland and whitewater.
A 2 Star qualification is not essential prior to taking on the 3 Star award, however paddling must be of the equivalent standard, and we recommend most people will benefit from following this path - Liquid Leisure run regular 2 Star courses from the same centre in Beaulieu.
The inland training and assessments are performed across the Autumn and Winter months; when the water levels are sufficient for the practice required. These 3 Star inland courses run from Dartmoor and North Wales, depending on the time of year and weather conditions. During your training you will be paddling grade 2 whitewater whilst developing your stroke work, rescue techniques and scenarios.
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.
Due to the more specialised nature of this course, Liquid Leisure request that you get in touch prior to booking.
