BC Two Star Courses 2018   iCal entry for this event

The Two Star is an improvement award that helps paddlers develop fundamental paddlesport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding of how the paddle, boat and water interact.

The award is obtained by taking an assessment in both a kayak and a canoe and you can choose which you want to treat as your main craft.  Holders of the Two Star are able to take part in a wider choice of club activities including trips to the River Wye, River Derwent, Lee Valley Whitewater Centre, Introductory Surf Course and the Foundation Safety & Rescue Training. We will provide a British Canoeing 2* Pass Slip which you can use to obtain a Certificate.

The river trip and assessment will be held at either the Fisheries on the Grand Union Canal or the River Beane at Hertford and a contribution towards petrol costs will be required.

We will have a good selection of club coaches to get the best out of you on the course and we see this as a big stepping stone in your paddling.
