During the course you will look at equipment, paddling skills, rescue techniques, and undertake a journey. We do our best to tailor the course to your needs, and there will be plenty of time to practice and gain full confidence in all the newly taught skills. In this award, you will take ownership of your own decisions and learn to make confident choices, based on the places you paddle, wind and weather.

A main focus is on understanding of the fundamentals of paddling. You learn self-rescue techniques, gain confidence in paddling, and undertake a journey. Plenty of time to practice and gain full confidence in all the newly taught skills.
