Improvers Courses for Members

Two Star Sessions

If you are club member and at Club Standard (i.e. 2* in one craft only) and want to gain your full BCU 2* award by becoming proficient on the other craft, then there will be a opportunities during the year. To do the CANOE element, come along to the Open Canoe Weekend. To do the KAYAK element look out for sessions being advertised.

Canoe Improvers (Club Standard & Two Star)

Canoe Improvers can become club members and continue with their progression on Tuesday evening sessions for Intermediate level club members (or just come along for a paddle if you are content at your level). Geoff  is going to run these and (number of canoes permitting) they are going to start on 27th June 2017.

The new 2-Star suggests you need to be proficient in both canoe and kayak so we plan that this happens partly over the summer (in your primary craft) and then in the following year when we run a conversion course (in the alternate craft).

The Open Canoe Weekend in July offers a two-day varied programme of skill development (1 to 3 Star), scenic paddles along the Jurassic coast - and of course, a chance to meet and renew friendships.

Kayak Improvers (Club Standard & Two Star)

Guidance on the skills needed to take the Club Standard assessment is provided as part of the Tuesday or Friday evening sessions for Intermediate level club members starting on 27th June & 30th June 2017. So come along on those evenings at 6:30pm and have some fun whilst learning the extra strokes and rescues (Draw, Support and X-Rescues - see Paddle Stokes) - or just go for a paddle (if you are content at that level).

The new 2-Star suggests you need to be proficient in both canoe and kayak so we currently plan that this happens partly over the summer (in your primary craft) and then in the following year when we run a conversion course (in the alternate craft). See the Wednesday evening session above or go to the Open Canoe Weekend to get the 2*.
