If you want to become independent on the water, go on self-guided adventures and know how to control your craft and stay safe on the water, this is the award for you. If you’ve never been paddling before, it might be worth starting with the Start and Discover awards. In this award you will take ownership of your own decisions and learn to make confidence choices, based on the places you paddle, wind and weather.

Level: Have completed the Discover Award or have some expirence of kayaking


We will provide all the necessary equipment but if you have your own and would prefer to use this, please bring it along.

The course is around 7 hours in total with a meet time of 09:30.

This course does involve a journey so be prepared with a packed lunch and a drink.
