A kayak and canoe training and assessment weekend in South Wales for Scouts and Leaders to gain the BCU / CW one, two or three-star proficiency awards, plus an opportunity to undertake the BCU Foundation Safety and Rescue training course.
Each paddler must come fully equipped with his/her own paddling equipment, some kayaks and canoes may be available to lend by prior arrangement with the local Scout District. The craft should be in good condition and registered with their Scout District and will be inspected by the coaching staff prior to being allowed on the water. Group Leaders or responsible adults should be available ashore to care for any paddler who for any reason leaves the water.
Canoe Wales will be notified of successful candidates and they will be issued with a certificate by Canoe Wales (Price now includes CERTIFICATION COSTS IF SUCCESSFUL)
Foundation Safety and Rescue candidates should also try and bring a tow line, throwbag and any rescue equipment already possessed, and recognise that they will spend a lot of time in the water and dress accordingly! This course and the 3-star course are subject to Canoe Wales registration many weeks before and early intention of participation is vital, the courses will be cancelled if numbers are insufficient.
