Open Canoe Award Assessment

From: £75.00

The open canoe Awards are aimed at paddlers looking to develop their skills for a safe day out on the lochs or basic moving water.

Open Canoe Award

The Open Canoe Award Assessment looks at your personal paddling ability in water up to and including grade one terrain and force three winds. It also looks at your judgement, decision making and river reading on the river. You should be able to paddle this grade of water and wind in full control of your boat and be confident.

The award is a brilliant foothold in the schemes before then progressing further on to the leader awards which not only look at personal but also leadership ability on moving water.
